Transfer Student Services

Darlene Poirier -- Transfer Services Coordinator

The Office of Transfer Student Services offers help to all transfer students to navigate and succeed in the University at Albany community. Key to success at any university is becoming an active member of the campus community. The Transfer Services Coordinator points students to a variety of campus resources to help them make the most of their time on campus and has developed Transfer Communities for transfer students. For the 2019-20 academic year, there are six Transfer Communities being offered just for new transfers. There are also six sections of the general education requirement, Challenges for the 21st Century, just for new transfer students. The Coordinator serves in an advisory capacity to Tau Sigma, the national honor society specifically for transfer students, the Non-Traditional Student Group, and the UA Transfer Network, a mentoring program for transfer students on campus. Additionally, the Coordinator oversees Transfer Transition Leaders (TTLs) who provide programming opportunities and peer mentorship to new transfer students and commuters. The Coordinator maintains a web resource for transfer students at
