Transfer-Year Experience Program
Set yourself on a path to academic success at The University of Texas at Austin. The Transfer-Year Experience serves as your resource for academic transition support. We can connect you with the particular programs and services you need during your first year on campus. Our staff can answer questions about your core curriculum progress as a new Longhorn.
Transfer-student Signature Courses
As a transfer student you arrive on campus with college experience, but UT Austin may be unfamiliar to you. To connect you with your transfer peers and help you acclimate to the level of academic rigor at UT Austin, we offer Signature Courses tailored to the transfer student experience.
Transfer-Year Interest Groups (TrIGs)
By joining a TrIG, you immediately have a reserved seat in high-demand courses, a built-in network of fellow transfer students, and a peer mentor with the experience and training to help you navigate your transition to UT Austin.
We want to hear from you
Sharing your experiences will help inform and shape programs for future transfer students. Along with any questions you may have, reach out to us with your stories and feedback about your transfer-year experience. Keep an eye out for opportunities to participate in surveys, focus groups, and transfer student programs.
