Transfer Pitt C.A.R.E.S. (Campus Advisement, Registration, and Enrollment Services) allows transfer students to meet with an academic adviser, participate in early enrollment, and check their financial aid status. Although Transfer Pitt C.A.R.E.S. is not required, it is highly recommended for the best selection of classes. Transfer Pitt C.A.R.E.S. is held in November for new transfer students entering in the spring semester and in April for new transfer students entering in the summer or fall semesters. Registration materials are sent approximately one month prior to the event to transfer students who have applied and been accepted to Pitt State.

Transitions UGS 101
Transitions is a six-week, one-credit hour course designed to assist students in making a smooth transition to Pittsburg State University.
The goal of the Transitions course is to provide transfer students the opportunity to interact with students who are sharing in their same experiences. Students who participate are trained in the use of the university-wide enrollment system (GUS), are exposed to a wide range of campus activities, are introduced to community services and amenities, and are informed of campus services and resources.
Transitions is available in the fall and spring semesters and is recommended for all transfer students.
