Transfer Student Success

We are a dedicated group of faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students who serve as the central point of contact for University of Redlands transfer students. We recognize that transfer students are adjusting to a new campus, a new social atmosphere and a new academic experience and we are committed to helping these students integrate into the campus community. We serve as transfer students' representative for needs and concerns within broader Student Affairs discussions. We provide a Transfer Ambassador Program to help guide students through the Redlands experience, by connecting, encouraging, and engaging transfer students. Our programs assist transfer students in finding their way through campus and navigating resources. We understand and focus our attention on the importance of building a transfer student community with opportunities to socialize and engage with other transfer students.

TSS is located on the second floor of the Hunsaker University Center in the Student Affairs Office
