Transfer Student Services Center

The Transfer Student Services Center (TSSC) is designed to enhance the overall experience for incoming and newly enrolled transfer students. The main goal of the TSSC is to ensure that the transfer student has a successful transition from a previous institution to the SXU community. The transfer process can be very challenging which is why the Transfer Student Services Center has been created to help students achieve a baccalaureate degree from SXU.

The following services for the TSSC are in place to assist our prospective and newly enrolled transfer students: clear and concise pathways for students to follow while at a community college, tailored transfer advising, a transfer-serving/transfer-friendly space, and a mentorship program for incoming transfer students. Staff of the TSSC collaborate with various faculty members and academic programs by forming a transfer advisory committee. The goal of the transfer advisory committee is to identify key support services that the prospective transfer student will need in order to make for a smooth transition to the University. The goal of our Transfer Peer Mentorship Program is to relieve transfer students from the stress of starting at a new school.

Transfer students have the opportunity to become a member of Tau Sigma which is a National Honor Society. Tau Sigma recognizes and promotes the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students. Membership is by invitation only as long as transfer student has completed a full-academic year at previous institution; enrolled as a full-time student at SXU; and achieves a GPA of 3.5 or higher their first term.
