Join the Transfer Connection for Transfer Welcome Week. We host several events (fall & spring) during Raider Welcome specifically for our transfer student population to help you get ready for and kickoff the semester. While at any of our events, you can meet up with the Transfer Ambassadors and learn more about the Transfer Techsans, a student organization designed to help students create a social network once they transfer to Tech by providing social, volunteer and professional development events.
