Transfer Mentor Program

In an effort to assist transfer students in their transition to Syracuse University, First-Year and Transfer Programs provides the Transfer Mentor Program.  This program matches successful current transfer students with incoming transfer students to help new students adjust to campus life. 

Mentors provide support for their students regarding classes, campus resources, and personal concerns.  The program aims to increase the overall academic achievement and satisfaction of transfer students by easing the adjustment and creating leadership opportunities for returning transfer students. 

Mentor Request Process

The process is now open for new fall 2018 transfer students to sign up for a transfer mentor.  To receive a Transfer Mentor for Fall 2018, complete the Transfer Mentor Request Form by Wednesday, August 15th.

Finally, mark your calendar for the Transfer Mentor Meet & Greet on Thursday, August 23rd at noon, immediately following the Transfer Student Welcome.
