any institutions are beginning to acknowledge the presence and role of the transfer student population on their campus. However, due to the diverse composition of this population, many student affairs educators are unsure of the best format for providing services and programs for transfer students. This session will highlight the importance of a transfer year experience, the effects it can have on building campus community, and how audience members can create a unique and tailored program appropriate for their specific student population at their respective institution.

  • Increase their knowledge and awareness of transfer student issues
  • Identify components to a successful transfer year experience
  • Learn effective implementation techniques for creating a successful transfer year experience
  • Create an action plan for implementation of a transfer year experience at their institution
  • Enhance their knowledge of the NODA, NODA Transfer Services Network, and the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students
  • Student affairs professionals
  • Academic affairs professionals
  • Anyone responsible for developing and creating initiatives to engage the transfer student population
"It is not only imperative for our transfer student population to feel connected to our institution and feel as though they are a part of a community, but it is also imperative for our campus partners to recognize the presence and importance of this population on campus and be willing to develop and engage them with their services and programs."
