Transfer Connection


Welcome to Texas Tech University

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.

How will the Transfer Connection help me?

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.
