Transfer-Year Experience Program

The Transfer-Year Experience Program creates transfer-specific academic spaces, connects transfer students to experienced mentors, and builds avenues for transfer students to establish peer networks.

  • To help you connect with transfer peers and acclimate to the level of academic rigor at UT Austin, we offer Transfer-Student Signature Courses.
  • By joining a Transfer-Year Interest Group, 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.
  • Attend the Transfer Student Leadership Summit to meet transfer student leaders from four-year colleges and universities across Texas and explore important transfer student topics.
  • Texas Transfer Students (TTS) is an organization on campus started by transfer students for transfer students. Learn more about TTS and follow them on Facebook.
