Transfer Mentoring

UAlbany Transfer Connections is a mentoring program that is designed to pair transfer students with peer mentors on campus.  New transfer students can sign up to work with a mentor during their first semester at UAlbany, in order to make their transition an easier one.  In addition, current transfer students who are in academic need, or who just want an extra resource for the semester, can also sign up for the program.

Our mentors consist of faculty, staff and transfer students who have been trained to offer the best possible help and guidance to other transfer students on campus.  They work with their mentees on a variety of issues, both academic and non-academic.

New transfer students wishing to work with a mentor in their first semester are encouraged to sign up at Orientation.  If you did not sign up at Orientation and would still like to work with a mentor, please fill out and mail in the mentee applicationPlease let us know if you are interested in a Peer Mentor or a Faculty/Staff Mentor.

Current transfer students who are on academic or terminal probation can sign up to work with a mentor in Spring 2017 by filling out and mailing the mentee application found here.

Transfer students who are interested in becoming mentors: We are currently recruiting! Please fill out an application here.

Any questions about the program can be directed to the Office of Transfer Services at 518-442-5333 or
