Transfer Student Transition Experience Assessment

Over the course of the next few months New Student and Family Programs will be looking at ways to improve the transition process for our new Transfer students. They will be looking at orientation, welcome programming and their sense of place at UF. To start they are beginning to look at the Transfer Preview process as they have heard both positive and negative feedback about the program since they redesigned it in 2011. This project will include transfer student focus groups, community surveys as well as redundancy mapping. Throughout this process their personal goal is to keep their college partners in the loop of any changes as well as meet with many of you to collect feedback and perspectives about the Transfer Preview program.

To begin they will be conducting two small focus groups with transfer students to help us narrow their focus and to collect preliminary thoughts. They are hoping to find some great transfer students to offer this opportunity to. They will have two different times available; students will only need to attend one. The group options are December 2, 2015 or December 4, 2015 both from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the Dean of Students Office (202 Peabody Hall) – Main Conference Room. They will be providing a complimentary lunch. Since they are looking to limit the group sizes they are asking that students preregister via this link:
