For Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 terms, Transfer Connections is excited to welcome our incoming and continuing students back to a residential college experience.  We will remain committed to providing a safe and supportive experience for all our program participants, as well as adhering to federal, state, and university guidelines. Our hope is that our blended approach will allow all mentees, living on/near campus or remotely, to meaningfully connect and engage with mentors while reducing risks.

We are excited to welcome you to our program, campus, and to the University of Michigan! 

Transfer Connections is a voluntary mentoring program for new LSA transfer students for the Fall or Winter terms. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until spaces are filled. All LSA transfer students for either Fall or Winter terms who have paid their University of Michigan Enrollment Deposit will receive an email inviting them to apply to the program.

Application for Winter 2022 admitted LSA transfer students.

Please apply by January 5, 2022. Spots are limited so early application is strongly encouraged!
