Overview:
Traditionally, the “First Year Experience” describes programs designed to help first-time college students transition to the college or university setting. Based on the success of these programs transitioning students from high school to college, how can we help transfer students in a similar way? It is essential to support and foster community for the transfer population in order to promote retention and progress to graduation.

Based on successful transition programs at a large public university, this webinar will emphasize appropriate interventions and services during the stages of transfer, as well as targeted programming efforts to foster student retention and progress to graduation. In this webinar several ideas will be presented for campuses to consider in developing their own transfer transition experience programs, featuring key elements for successful initiatives at any institution. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a timeline and implementation plan for the first-year transfer experience that will translate well to their own institution.
Objectives:
  • Define the importance of preparation for successful transfer transitions
  • Develop plans for transition programs including orientation, welcome week, and beyond
  • Identify at-risk populations and develop specific targeted programming
  • Assess the campus culture, needs of the institution, and students’ needs
  • Share successful retention efforts from both academic and social aspects
  • Create a timeline for the first-year transfer experience
  • Develop a plan for implementation
