Hartwick transfer students begin to connect to their new college community through ’Wick 101 Coaching!
During your first semester as a Hartwick student, you’ll be enrolled in ‘Wick 101, which for transfer students is a coaching-model credit (not a class that meets regularly). You will be assigned to a transition “coach” who will contact you prior to Welcome Weekend to start getting to know you. You will then meet this coach in person during Welcome Weekend, and meet monthly throughout the Fall Term through individual coaching sessions.
Requirements for completing the ‘Wick 101 coaching-model credit:
- Attend the “Reinvention” Presentation during Welcome Weekend on Thursday, August 23; 2:00 p.m., Lambros Arena
- Attend the Transfer Student Luncheon on Friday, August 24; 11:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m., Dewar Union, Chesebro Room
- Meet individually with your coach three times during the Fall Term
- Attend a Pre-Registration Workshop presented by the Office of Academic Advising

This coaching model is specially designed for transfer students who have already experienced new student orientation and/or transition classes at their previous institution. While the coaching sessions will familiarize you with the processes and resources specific to Hartwick, it also includes a focus on helping you connect with the experiential learning opportunities that will help you meet your goals.
’Wick 101 is required for graduation and will be automatically added to your first semester course schedule as a one-credit, pass/fail class.
