Current Transfer Students

USD understands many of the challenges that new transfer students face in their transition to a new institution. There are many resources and people available to help you at USD!

Transfer Transition Team

The Transfer Transition Team (TTT) provide an ongoing point of contact for each new transfer student and create transfer-specific opportunities for new students to be welcomed, recognized as valued community members, and engaged in the campus community.

These student leaders serve as a point of resource and referral for new transfer students and provide timely and relevant information about academic and personal resources on campus. You will first meet the TTT at a Summer Registration Day or Transfer Fall Orientation!
