Transfer Resources


New transfer students are assigned one of our Transfer Ambassadors who serve as a resource for information and guidance in your transition to WCU. They will follow up with you during your first semester to ensure you are having a successful experience. Feel free to contact them if you have questions or need assistance. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to rely on a fellow transfer student, someone who has traveled your pathway and is just a bit ahead.


This newsletter series will be sent to your Catamount e-mail throughout your first semester and will provide helpful information. It is a targeted and time-bound series written for and to new transfer students.  It will have useful tips, date reminders, ‘how-to’ information, opportunities, and more.
