Transfer students have less time to get fully prepared for a successful experience. They need to find everything on campus, acclimate themselves to all new info and resources and then hopefully find a job by the time they graduate in two or so years.  That is why we developed TransferMation.  We wanted to fast-track transfer students to success on every level here at WCSU.
For each topic there is a short explanation and then a specific challenge.  We encourage any WCSU transfer student to try these eight challenges and if there is a topic where you wish to pursue more, check out the “I want more” section.
