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 curriculum, building the skills and the relationships that will help you succeed at USD and beyond.

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 ease students' academic and social transition to USD, expand intellectual curiosity beyond the classroom, and establish an immediate sense of community with faculty and fellow transfer students.


2018-19 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 Engage is about being involved in your community. As students, we have the opportunity to connect with each other to create a positive change. I believe by working together and becoming more involved with the USD community, we can influence others in making a difference, allowing us to become Changemakers. – Kennedy Marr, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Engage
