Transfer Student Peer Advisors (TSPAs) serve as resources for incoming transfer students who are making the transition from their previous institution to the diverse academic, intellectual and social culture of the University. As TSPAs, students serve as initial contacts for newly admitted students, assist with the implementation of orientation and Fall Transfer Welcome Week programs, and provide general support for their group of advisees throughout the fall semester (and into the spring semester if possible) through regular emails, calls and small group activities.
Selection to the TSPA team is a unique honor and a rewarding opportunity for personal and professional growth. As such, TSPAs must be enthusiastic, approachable, knowledgeable about University resources and genuinely interested in helping others. They must also be able to work with others from a wide variety of backgrounds. TSPAs must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the University. It is also not required that TSPAs be transfer students at the University. Everyone is welcome to apply!
