Enhancing Transfer Student Experiences

Academic Advising/College Support

CLA Transfer Advising will enhance the international transfer student experience from a multi-faceted approach. Our CLA 3001 Transfer Semester Experience course will be modified to intentionally foster international and domestic student interaction to encourage engagement and a positive sense of belonging. CLA’s portion of Transfer Welcome Day will also include specific programs for international students. In collaboration with ISSS, we will create videos for international transfer students for use in our online orientation, website, and CLA 3001 course. Partnering with Admissions, ISSS, MELP, and CLA departments, we will investigate and develop a structured system for transfer re-evaluations by CLA departments for courses from international institutions, which are critical to students’ initial enrollment, timeline to major/minor declaration, retention, and progress towards graduation.
