The Transfer Services Network will be hosting FORUMS throughout the year to assist members in information sharing. Details for the next Transfer Services Network FORUM are below. We invite anyone interested to attend.


Topic: The Big Shift: A Guide to Developing Pre-Orientation Workshops

Date: Wednesday July 12th
12:30pm-1:30pm CST

Description: Join a former National Institute for the Study of Transfer Student Ambassador to learn about strategies for engaging prospective students before the students enroll at your institution. As an undergraduate student, Milka had a difficult transfer experience. She went on to develop, a blog site dedicated to sharing transfer student stories, and sharing strategies for transfer success. The session will use the ICEP (Identity, Communication, Engagement, & Preparation) concept to help transfer professionals develop pre-orientation workshops.

Topic: Building Relationships: The Transfer Symposium and Other Key Strategies to Engage Your Campus Community

Date: Wednesday September 20th
12:00pm-1:00pm CST

Description: As transfer student enrollment grows on our campuses, the creation of an institution-wide vision for transfer students becomes more important to ensure transfer student success. Appalachian State University hosted a Transfer Symposium in September, 2013 for more than 200 faculty and staff to learn about our transfer students (i.e., demographics), understand why transfer students are important, and to learn how we can best serve transfer students both inside and outside of the classroom. Campus momentum from this event led to Transfer Symposium 2014 and 2015. Learn more about these events and other key initiatives that have engaged faculty and staff......our entire campus community.

Presenter: Jane Rex, Director, Office of Transfer Services at Appalachian State University

Topic: Unpacking the Transfer Playbook: How Colleges Can Improve Transfer Outcomes

Date: Wednesday October 18th

Description: This webinar will highlight effective transfer practices based on national fieldwork at more than a dozen two-and four-year institutions identified as very successful in helping community college students transfer and complete bachelor’s degrees using National Student Clearinghouse data. Drawing from the recently published Transfer Playbook, we will share findings and feature new tools to help colleges measurably improve their transfer outcomes.
