Transfer Connection

The purpose of the Transfer Connection is to provide an umbrella for the programs and services offered by Texas Tech University geared specifically for transfer students.  The Transfer Connection is a collaborative collection of programs and services that will assist transfer students in their transition to Texas Tech University.  Recent studies show that transfer student experience a phenomenon called the "transfer shock."  In this "transfer shock," transfer students feel lonely, lost, overwhelmed, and uncertainty about their decision to transfer, which can result in a drop in grade point average, and in some cases, drop-out.  Results from a focus group conducted with five random currently enrolled transfer students support the information provided by researchers.  The Transfer Connection program will provide opportunities for transfer student to create connections with Texas Tech University students, faculty, and staff, and to the university community with hopes of retaining these students through graduation.
