Transfer Mentor Program

The Transfer Mentor Program is an initiative organized by the Office of New Student & Leadership Programs in partnership with Tulane transfer students and aims to support the transition of transfer students into Tulane University. This free program is open to all transfer students attending Tulane and serves as an opportunity for incoming transfer students to connect with student leaders on campus, meet other incoming transfer students, and learn about involvement opportunities on campus. During New Student Orientation, each transfer student will be placed in a small group lead by a Transfer Mentor, an upper-class transfer student leader. This mentor will serve as a guide and resource for transfer students throughout the fall semester and attend each Transfer Mentor Program meeting.

More information about specific times, locations, and dates of the Transfer Mentor Program will be available in early fall 2021
