Welcome to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. As a transfer student you have already been successful at another institution. Transfer students are an important segment of the student body. The majority of students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree have credit from more than one institution. Each institution represents a unique academic culture and you will find some challenges as you adapt to UNL.
You will find yourself developing a transition skill set which can be valuable to prospective employers. As you learn to adapt you will seek out resources, learn to ask questions, evaluate information and apply it to your situation.
Explore the page For Students to find information and links to support your transition to the UNL campus and its unique culture. The Transfer Team wants you to have a great experience as you continue your education here and can help you locate a myriad of campus resources designed to help you succeed. We are your go-to source for transfer information.
It is important for transfer students to feel like part of the university community early on. Find at least one way to connect on campus whether that is through a residence hall, student organization, student government, campus job, undergraduate research, or attending campus events. There is even an honor society exclusively for transfer students.
Be sure to read the Transfer Connection, either by email, or online. Its just in time information, advice, and events will be valuable. You can be notified by Facebook or Twitter when a new TC is posted.
You may be interested in a Transfer Learning Community or the Transfer Advantage seminar course. Transfer Peer Mentors, other students who have been successful in the transition, are available for those who are interested.
Let the Transfer Team know how we can help you succeed in reaching your educational goals. You are not alone.
Go Big Red!
