Transfer Mentor Program

The Transfer Mentor Program matches current transfer students with new transfer students in their first semester at CofC to provide advice and support.  New fall 2019 transfer students interested in receiving a mentor, must complete the Transfer Mentor Request Form available during the summer.  Transfer mentors will support their mentees during their first semester at the College of Charleston with guidance from the Transfer Resource Center.
