Transfer Learning Community

You've already demonstrated you can experience success in college, but wouldn't you love to thrive? Your Transfer Learning Community (TLC) will help you learn to integrate knowledge across your curriculum, building the skills and the relationships that will help you succeed.

While in a Transfer Learning Community (TLC), students will take a course led by an esteemed member of the faculty, learning the importance of connection both in the classroom and beyond. Being in a TLC will help expand intellectual curiosity beyond the classroom and establish an immediate sense of community with faculty and fellow transfer students.

2019-20 Transfer Learning Community Theme

Engage TLC

Connecting to the community - Changemakers Engage!

Built around the theme Engage, your TLC will ensure you have peak academic and social experiences while at USD. As a new member of the USD community and the Engage TLC, you'll work toward solidarity, connecting with members of the USD community and beyond to facilitate discourse and encourage equitable participation in civic life.

This Learning Community is open to transfer students only. All TLC courses satisfy the core curriculum requirement for First-Year Integration.
Begin quote The Engage theme of the TLC creates a space for transfer students who come from diverse backgrounds to join in community together and practice Changemaking in the context of community building. It encourages us to take advantage of the full USD experience by taking opportunities that present themselves to us. By doing this we are better able to enter the campus as transfer students prepared for what will come in our time at USD. – Jesse Magaña, Facilitating Transfer Scholastic Assistant for Engage
