Transfer Workshop Series Logo

As a transfer student, you typically have different concerns and needs than first-year students. The Transfer Workshop Series is designed specifically for transfer students to learn about a variety of university services and opportunities, and to connect with other students. See below for the schedule of these free workshops, taking place throughout Fall and Spring semesters. All workshops will have an in-person option where you can meet other transfer students as well as be streamed simultaneously via Zoom. 

Attendance at these events counts toward Crimson Transfer Honor Society (CTHS) eligibility. Check out the CTHS website for more information.

  • Students who attended two workshops in Fall 2022, signed in, and meet the GPA requirements will receive an invitation Spring 2023 to join. 
  • Students who attend two workshops in Spring 2022, signed in, and meet the GPA requirements will receive and invitation Fall 2022 to join. 

If you have questions about these events or attendance verification, please email Paul Fisk, Transfer Student Success Program Manager. Follow us on Instagram for updates.
