National Transfer Student Week

2019 National Transfer Student Week

October 21-25, 2019

  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.
