Transfer Symposiums at Appalachian
In September of 2013, Appalachian State University hosted the first Transfer Symposium to raise awareness about transfer students and the issues they face for the campus community so faculty and staff could better understand the students with whom they work. The first Symposium focused on who were transfer students and how Appalachian can better serve transfer students in and out of the classroom. Since 2013 we've held additional Symposium, each with it's own topic to further engage the campus in a conversation about transfer students.
Be on the lookout for information about our next Transfer Symposium! If you have topic ideas please forward them to Jane Rex, Director of the Office of Transfer Services.
