What is National Transfer Student Week?

The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) organizes National Transfer Student Week to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them on their journeys.

Today's students are transferring more than ever before. As transfer champions, it's vitally important that we build awareness of common transfer barriers and the diverse student needs and identities within our transfer populations. Although the transition between institutions is inherently complex, we believe that transfer is a good and valuable pathway to bachelor's degree completion.

Join us for this annual event, every third week of October, to challenge assumptions, build empathy, and instill transfer pride on your campus.
