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!

Transfer Connections is a voluntary mentoring program for new LSA transfer students for the Fall or Winter terms. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until spaces are filled. All LSA transfer students for either Fall or Winter terms who have paid their University of Michigan Enrollment Deposit will receive an email inviting them to apply to the program.

Application for Fall 2020 admitted LSA transfer students can be found here.

*Extensions available by requests. Applicants will receive a status announcement 3-4 weeks after submission; early application is encouraged.
