Transfer Programs @ CSU

As a transfer student, CSU knows that you have unique experiences and an enhanced understanding of college life. Additionally, transfer students come from a variety of different institutions and already may understand what it means to be a college student, thus, beyond orientation programming for Transfer students and Transfer Ram Welcome, we have created a variety of programs and services to help you understand what it means to be a student at CSU during your first semester on campus as well as to help you become a part of the CSU community. 

After Transfer Student Orientation and Transfer Ram Welcome, the following opportunities exist for transfer students: 

Transfer Events and Outreach
Each semester, every new transfer student is assigned a Transfer Transition Leader who they meet during orientation and reaches out to students via e-mail on a weekly basis throughout their first semester on campus as well as develops programs for new transfer students to build community with one another as well as to assist with getting new students connected to the CSU and Fort Collins community. Please click on the above link to see our exciting schedule of programs, events, and outreach opportunities.

Transfer Residential Communities
Orientation and Transition Programs, in collaboration with Residence Life, is pleased to offer an exciting living opportunity exclusively for transfer students in Allison, Braiden, and Laurel Village - Alpine Halls. The transfer communities focus on easing your transition to CSU by enhancing connections with other students and the campus. They have all the convenience of living on campus plus the benefit of living with others who can relate to the transfer student experience.

Tau Sigma National Honor Society
The Tau Sigma National Honor Society is an national academic honor society designed specifically to recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students. CSU proudly hosts its very own chapter of Tau Sigma. We invite eligible transfer students to become members in the spring semester and hold an induction ceremony in their honor.
