2018 National Transfer Student Week

October 15-19, 2018

  National Transfer Student Week Logo  
The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students organizes National Transfer Student Week to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them. WTAMU is happy to be a part of this year's celebration. We understand the value that transfer students bring to the campus, and want to make sure they understand this as well. Throughout the week, Transfer Services and the Transfer Outreach Program (T.O.P.) will be partnering with other departments and organizations on campus to show students that they have a network of support to accomplish their goals at West Texas A&M University!
Please contact 806-651-5374 or for more information.

Opportunities for Transfer Students

  • Leave your mark at WT - come by the Student Success Center (or JBK Commons from 11-1) to add your name and previous institutions to our Transfer Buffalo!

  • Check out the T.O.P. Table in the JBK on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11-1 to find out more information and take advantage of our daily activities!

  • Transfer Student Sweepstakes - Complete a short survey at WTAMU National Transfer Week Survey that will place you in a drawing to win a $500 scholarship provided by WTAMU Scholarship Services (two scholarships will be awarded)! You will also have the opportunity to recognize a WT faculty or staff member as a Transfer Champion - someone who has been an advocate for you and/or assisted in your transition to WTAMU.
