Transfer Connections provides an opportunity for new LSA transfer students to connect with peer mentors, who are former transfer students, in order to ease the transition from your former college or university into Michigan. Transfer Connections helps to make the University a smaller place, provides support and guidance, and helps students build relationships on campus.
Transfer Connections is a voluntary, selective program for new LSA transfer students entering the University of Michigan for either the Fall or Winter terms. All new LSA transfer students admitted for Fall or Winter terms are eligible to apply. Currently, Transfer Connections serves only LSA transfer students. Students in other schools/colleges should contact their respective academic services office to find out if mentoring programs are available.
Transfer Connections Groups are made up of 8-12 Mentees (new transfer students) that share a peer mentor -- you'll get to know other students with similar and different interests and a Faculty/Staff Mentor (professor or staff member that work at the University of Michigan). Transfer Mentors contact participants in the weeks prior to the start of the term to confirm their participation and remind them about upcoming events.
All accepted participants are invited to meet their Transfer Mentor and the other students in Transfer Connections group at the Transfer Connections Kickoff, which occurs shortly after the term begins.
