Before coming to Transfer Advising & Registration Day, there are few things that you want to be sure are taken care of so you can have a successful experience.

  1. Immunization Requirements – FIU requires you to have had various types of immunizations before entering the university. You will have Immunizations holds on your account that will prevent you from registering for your classes until you submit all of the necessary documentation. Please be sure you've done this at least four weeks prior to your scheduled orientation date. For more information, please visit
  2. Graduation Success Initiative (GSI) – The Graduation Success Initiative is an extensive, university-wide set of innovations dedicated to helping you succeed academically. As a transfer student, it will help to ensure your timely graduation in your appropriate major. Please visit to learn about the tools available to you.
