Transitions Program

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Your success — as a student and as a thriving member of our community — is our first priority. One of the ways that you can get started early on that path to success, is the Transitions Program. This pre-orientation program for multicultural and first-generation college students is intended to get you acclimated with all aspects of Providence College.​

We think Transitions is right for you, and we think you’re right for it. After just a few days on campus, we’re confident that you’ll be confident to walk into your first year at PC prepared to succeed.​
