Columbia's #TransferStudentWeek campaign highlights the unmatched access to an Ivy League education for community college transfer students—and unique support after they've enrolled—provided by the Columbia University School of General Studies, the University's undergraduate college specifically designed for nontraditional students. Our website features input from community college representatives, the stories of students and alumni who transferred to GS, and Columbia administrators. 

Here are a few highlights: 


  • GS students are fully integrated into the undergraduate classroom—they take the same classes and earn the same degree as other Columbia undergraduates

  • Our student body is largely representative of college-going students nationwide 

  • 47% of our incoming students in recent years transferred from a community college

  • 45% of these students are the first in their family to attend college

  • 61% of these students received a federal Pell Grant

  • Our decades of experience educating nontraditional students have allowed us to develop unmatched academic support programs specifically designed for the unique challenges faced by nontraditional students, which have been used as a model to develop free nationwide programming

These videos will feature students talking about their transfer experience as it aligns to the RP Group's Student Transfer Capacity-Building Framework and the four factors for increasing students’ university readiness as identified by Through the Gate (university affordability, school-life balance, pathway navigation, and support network).

Through these videos, we aim to continue amplifying students’ experiences as they work toward their transfer goal and highlight our new publication,
Transfer Stories and Strategies: How Six Student Groups Experience the Transfer Journey. This brief offers a snapshot of which factors carried more weight for certain student groups and strategies for supporting these students, including women, older students, African-American/Black students, Hispanic and Latina/o/x students, students from the Central Valley, and students who have left their community college but still have a transfer goal.

  • Tuesday, 10/20: Tau Tuesday and Donuts with Duerk- The Provost at the University of Miami is a transfer student. During Homecoming there will be an event in which the Provost will be present, handing out individually wrapped donuts. We'll be present at this event passing out supplies for transfer students to illustrate their transfer story. It will be a time for transfer students to connect with one another and learn about each other's stories.

  • Wednesday, 10/21: Giveback Wednesday- We will be collaborating with Homecoming for a campus-wide service project.

  • Thursday, 10/22: Workshop Thursday- We will be hosting a virtual event focused on career readiness and networking. Later on, we will be having a casual virtual transfer social/ dance party on Zoom.

Due to being virtual this fall, we will be focusing on "Transfer Acts of Kindness." This is a concurring campaign with NTSW where folks can either nominate an "outstanding transfer student" or a "transfer champion." There is an online survey they can fill out with the option of anonymity and/or comments. Student staff then organize the survey data and send out personalized emails with a 'certificate of recognition' and comments/commenters (if given). We are also looking at hosting some type of virtual event that week, but are still researching vendors.


Valaurie Lee, President/CEO

We would like to sponsor a round table discussion with transfer students to discuss their experience as Transfer Credit Students.

We have two students from Florida A&M University to discuss their Transfer Student Association, two transfer students from Tuskegee University, one transfer student from Kennesaw State and Florida State University, and one from Maricopa Community College.


This panel discussion will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 20th at 2pm. Come celebrate transfer students!
