Project Spotlight

TRANSFERmational Project

An initiative that creates a disciplined approach for the support of transfer students to the University of Virginia beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year.  Renewed interest from the Board of Visitors and the President’s Office to increase an already growing transfer population requires substantial enhancements to strategic resources. A fall 2016 transfer student climate survey reveals: 42% of respondents disagree with the statement, “I found resources that assisted with my academic transition to UVA,” and 52% of respondents are dissatisfied with University support for transfer students. The project’s long-term goal is for UVA to provide the preeminent transfer student experience nationally.
