Pre-Transfer Academy

The Pre-Transfer Academy is a transfer preparation program designed to help students successfully navigate the transfer process. We are committed to engaging students in the transfer process and working to close the equity and racial gaps in the process.

The Pre-Transfer Academy offers:

  • Additional funds for books and groceries – eliminating the barriers of added costs that are not typically addressed in financial assistance packages.
  • One-on-one advising and mentoring academic, transfer, and social goals.
  • Creation of a network of advisors, successful transfer students, and dedicated staff committed to student success.
