University Transfer

Welcome to the UTC!

Our mission is to identify, recruit, and motivate students of diverse backgrounds to make well informed decisions as they navigate the university transfer process and complete a baccalaureate degree or beyond.


Dear Students, 

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, the University Transfer Center (UTC) has transitioned to serving students in a virtual environment. 

Transfer counselors are now available to serve you through various remote methods.  We are able to assist you via telephone, email, online chat, and/or video-conferencing.  Students wishing to "see" their counselor through zoom or Cranium Café.  We encourage you to find a method that fits your needs.

We know this is a time of uncertainty and concern for many of you, and we want to reassure you that although we may not be able to offer in-person services at this time, we will continue t
o be available to assist you.  

As transfer counselors, we are committed to continue offering excellent services while also protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community.  We thank you and appreciate your flexibility and understanding as we navigate through these challenging times.  Please stay healthy!
