It is impossible for a new transfer student to know all the ins and outs of college life at UNT, so the Transfer Center provides support to all transfer students during their transition period. The Transfer Center’s main goal is to help students connect to important campus resources, ensuring a successful transition to UNT. Transfer students are very important to UNT; each fall, we welcome over 3,500 new transfer students on our campus and our goal is to be a resource to all of them.
The Transfer Center offers various opportunities that promote involvement, including Tau Sigma National Honor Society, Transfer REAL Community, Transfer Programs and Transfer Orientation. Throughout the semester, we host several social and academic events that allow our transfer students to make connections and learn about pertinent departments that will aid in their success.
Please browse through the site for further information on the many resources, services and programs available specifically for transfer students. See Transfer Center dropbox above for other opportunities.
Orientation & Transition Programs
Stovall Hall, Suite 155
Apply to be a Transfer Ambassador! Applications are due Wednesday, March 19 to Stovall, suite 155.
Transfer Ambassadors are student leaders who also transferred from another college or university, so they can easily relate to the challenges that our students may face during their first semester at UNT. Our Transfer Ambassadors provide one-on-one assistance and mentoring to new students. If you ever need guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Transfer Ambassador! You can make an appointment or just walk in to speak with them regarding a variety of topics, including:
- Understanding what courses will transfer to UNT
- Making social connections on campus
- Choosing a major
- Getting involved on campus
To contact a Trans Am, please call 940-369-7287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
