For the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 terms, Transfer Connections has been adapted to a virtual format to provide a safe and supportive experience for all our program participants, as well as to adhere to federal, state, and university guidelines. Our hope is that this approach will allow all mentees, living on/nearcampus or remotely, to meaningfully connect and engage with mentors while reducing risks. We are excited to welcome you to our program and to the University!
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 2021 admitted LSA transfer students is available here. Please apply by January 22, 2021 but early application is encouraged!
