In LSA, we recruit the curious. Bright minds on the frontlines of research and in the classroom traverse topics from art history to molecular biology. LSA’s deep resources help create an environment in which thriving isn’t the exception, it’s the rule.  

In LSA, we also recognize that transfer students might have concerns about finding their place and questions about how to take advantage of all LSA offers in a condensed timeframe. That is why we developed an array of resources offered exclusively for transfer students.


It’s never too early to begin planning your transfer into LSA.

We have the tools and resources to help you explore how LSA might become the next step on your educational journey. From understanding admissions requirements, to learning how your credits will transfer, to advice on how your coursework at your current school can prepare you for success in LSA, we can help you explore your options.


Concerned that you don’t have time to discover all the opportunities LSA has to offer?

The LSA Transfer Student Program offers workshops throughout your first semester to help you learn about study abroad, financial aid, internships and much more. 


Concerned about finding your place?

The Transfer Connections mentorship program is just one of the many programs that helps transfer students gain confidence to seek out resources, engage in transfer student social events and skillbuilding activities, and make campus easier to navigate academically and socially.


Wondering how you can get involved with LSA’s renowned faculty?

UROP’s Changing Gears program offers the chance to complete research with a faculty member throughout your first two semesters on campus. Students can also find reserach opportunities through their major department.


Interested in learning more about the Honors Program as a transfer student? 

This highly ranked academic program enables students to pursue deeper intellectual engagement throughout their LSA experience, potentially culminating in an Honors major. Transfer students can earn Honors by completing the requirements as set out by their department of major.


These are just a few of the resources dedicated to helping transfer students make a successful transition, find their place, and achieve as an LSA student.
