At this point in time we are planning for Transfer Connections to resume in-person programming in the fall. As the University of Michigan, State, and Federal guidelines are updated as part of Covid-19 response, we will adjust the Transfer Connections program as necessary and keep incoming students informed of any changes. We hope to welcome you to campus in the fall!
Application for Fall 2020 admitted transfer students will open in May 2020.
Get support from a former transfer student
Gain skills and discover opportunities
Build a support network
...and gain a head start in your transition into the University of Michigan with Transfer Connections. This program is exclusively for transfer students, and is a separate program from Transfer Orientation. Students must complete an online application and will be matched with a former transfer student with mentoring experience if accepted. This program is designed to help transfer students that enter UM in summer, fall or winter gain confidence to seek resources, access a series of unique social events and skillbuilding activities, and make campus easier to navigate academically and socially. Over the course of the year, a Transfer Connections mentee will learn about summer internship, research and volunteer opportunities, make a plan for success with a caring and supportive mentor, attend social events and study breaks in a relaxed environment and choose from an array of other opportunities to supplement his or her academic life.
