Transfer Students

CSE is committed to serving the needs of students who transfer to GW by cultivating a sense of belonging, connecting students to academic resources, assisting students in building personal and professional networks, and supporting students in their progress toward graduation.

CSE provides several resources specifically including the following:

Transfers Connect

Transfers Connect is a Week of Welcome event hosted by the CSE, exclusive to transfer students. This event allows for transfer students, both incoming and previously transferred alike, to meet one another. They can also connect with offices and student organizations that can support them while at GW. Transfers Connect also happens at the beginning of the Spring Semester.

Fall 2017 Transfers Connect date: September, 7th, 2017, 7pm-8:30pm, Science and Engineering Hall Event Space

TEAM (Transfer Engagement and Acclimation Mentorship) Program

The TEAM program relies on a group of returning transfer students to guide new transfer students through their first semester at GW.  TEAM focuses on sharing resources, building social networks, and helping students take advantage of the unique opportunities afforded to GW students.
