Transfer Mentor Program

In an effort to assist transfer students in their transition to Syracuse University, First-Year and Transfer Programs provides the Transfer Mentor Program. This program matches successful current transfer students with incoming transfer students to help new students adjust to campus life. 

Mentors provide support for their students regarding classes, campus resources and personal concerns.  The program aims to increase the overall academic achievement and satisfaction of transfer students by easing the adjustment and creating leadership opportunities for returning transfer students.
