Transfer Student Groups

Vanderbilt recognizes that although transfer students are not new to the college experience, you are new to our campus community.  Coming to a new university can be daunting. To assist you with making that transition, all incoming transfer students will be assigned to one of 13 transfer groups.  These groups – each of which is comprised of approximately 16 transfer students – meets throughout the fall semester.  Starting on move-in weekend, transfer groups help you form connections and support networks as you establish and navigate your new life at Vanderbilt.

Each transfer group is led by a team of two upper-division students who are themselves transfer students from previous years.  These student leaders are called Transfer Student Leaders (TSLs).
