Transfer students enrolling at Clemson face unique transition issues. Transfer students make a new set of college friends, figure out how to get involved on campus in clubs or organizations and adjust to Clemson’s competitive and challenging academic standards.
Transfer Academic Programs collaborates with campus partners to provide programs to support new transfer students as they transition to Clemson. The goal is for new transfer students to take advantage of available support resources and feel they are a part of the Clemson Family.
TransferMation is a newsletter produced each semester with important dates and frequently asked questions about living on campus, financial aid and the LIFE Scholarship, transfer admissions procedures, orientation and required health forms.
TIGER Den (Transfer Initiative for Growth, Enrichment and Retention) is a community of new transfer students housed together in Calhoun Courts apartments on Clemson’s campus. Students participate in academic support programs and community-service projects each semester.
Go to the Housing Web page for more information and the TIGER Den application.
Mission: Transition is a special program for new transfer students held each semester during Clemson Connect. Part of LIB 100, this program features current Clemson students sharing what it takes to make a successful transition to Clemson. Included in the program are important academic resources, information technology support and campus involvement. New transfer students will complete an assignment about their transition experience for their eportfolio.
Transfer Council is part of Clemson’s Undergraduate Student Government. All members of Transfer Council transferred into Clemson, giving them a unique perspective on what new transfer students face. Transfer Council works to promote support programs for transfer students and provides a representative voice for the transfer student population on campus.
