Fall Transfer Opportunity Scholar Guide



Dare to be extraordinary at Eastern Connecticut State University. It's a place where a love of learning is palpable - and the drive to make a difference is even more so. You are officially on your way to becoming a Warrior! This guide will help ensure that you are fully prepared for the start of the fall 2021 semester. All you have to do is follow these steps:

  • Take a moment to enjoy this incredible milestone in your life - you're going to college! Unfold your acceptance packet to reveal the #Eastern2025 banner, and take a photo with it to commemorate the occasion. If you post it on Instagram and tag @WhyEastern, we could feature you on our page!
  • To accept your award, go to and log in to your account. You will be taken directly to your home page (if not, click the tab for "Home"). Click on the program name to expand the box below, containing the link to an Acceptance form. Then, click on the link to be taken directly to your Acceptance form. Complete all required field, upload any required materials, and click "Submit".

    The deadline to accept the scholarship is March 25, 2021.

  • Your Office 365 e-mail account is the primary source of communication between you and Eastern. Prior to arriving to campus, you will receive emails to inform you about enrollment. Your account credentials are also used to access eWeb to register for classes, apply for housing, and more. View instructions on how to activate your Office 365 account; please refer to your acceptance letter for your Eastern ID, username, and email address.

  • Visit Housing & Residential Life's website for detailed application instructions after accepting your scholarship. You are not required to submit a tuition or housing deposit. Although your application will prompt you to rate your top three choices for housing, you will be placed in Occum Hall, which is our transfer student hall. You may learn more about Occum Hall by visiting
  • Make sure to submit any updated official college transcript to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible. Your credit evaluation is currently being reviewed and will indicate how your previous college courses will transfer over to Eastern. Your evaluation will be posted on eWeb Online Services. You may access this by logging into your Office 365 account, and clicking the icon titled "SelfService (eWeb)". You may then navigate to Student Services > Student Records > Transfer Course Evaluation.
  • After you have accepted your award, you will receive information from the Advising Center regarding Fall 2021 course registration. Please be sure to check your Eastern email regularly, as we will begin sending this information in April. Complete course registration as soon as possible. 
  • Please go to for the required health forms.

    Be sure to review the "Five Things You Need to Read!" form. 

  • Be on the lookout for a survey that will be emailed to you from your Scholar Advisor to inform them of your travel plans and assistance you may need. This email will provide the date you will be expected to be on campus and further details on move-in procedures. Please be prepared to move to campus in late August.
  • SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising and Registration) is a program prior to the start of classes designed to introduce all new students to life on campus. Your specific SOAR session will be in late August, after your arrival.
