Transfer Students at Appalachian

Transfer students make up a fourth of the undergraduate student population at Appalachian. Each fall we identify the characteristics of our incoming transfer students and share that with the campus community. The latest information can be found here.

Transfer Student Mentors

One of the success stories of helping transfer students is the students themselves. The Transfer Student Mentors (TSMs) are a group of transfer students who have successfully transferred to Appalachian. They assist incoming transfer students by providing information and helping students get connected with the Appalachian campus.

Faculty Transfer Mentors

Faculty Transfer Mentors develop supportive, academic relationships with prospective and new Appalachian transfer students. Faculty mentors will provide help in understanding the curriculum and the student’s remaining required coursework as well as provide guidance, support, and referral to resources that will benefit new students in a new environment.
