Transfer Student Groups

Transfer Student Groups

The Transition Programs office recognizes that although transfer students are not new to the college experience, they are new to Vanderbilt. Coming to a new University can be daunting and challenging.  Incoming transfer students will be assigned to one of thirteen transfer groups. These groups–each of which comprises about sixteen transfer students–meets throughout the fall semester. Starting on move-in weekend, transfer groups help students form connections and support networks as they establish and navigate their new lives at Vanderbilt.

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