In order to assist you with your transition, the Transfer Connection is a collaborative collection of programs and services that will provide you opportunities to create connections with students, faculty, and staff, and to the university community you now call home.
While this isn't your first collegiate experience, this is your first year at Texas Tech, and we want to make you feel welcome and help you through your journey in higher education. Consider the Transfer Connection as a way to get to know your new home.
Recent studies show that transfer students experience a phenomenon called "transfer shock". In this state of "transfer shock," students often feel lonely, lost, and overwhelmed in their new environment, which can result in a drop in grade point average, an inability to connect with the institution, and in some cases, drop-out. Our university community is committed to providing you the support and assistance you need to be a successful transfer student.

"The Transfer Connection meant that my university loved me and cared about my time as a Red Raider. It allowed me to meet new people when I didn't know anyone at first, and become a leader among my fellow students."
