Additional NTSW Initiatives 

Transfer Spotlights

Advisors who would like to highlight a transfer student they have worked with should encourage the student to submit a Transfer Student Spotlight form. Click the link in the title for past Spotlight subjects.  

Thank a Transfer Champion 

Did you know transfer students can Thank a Transfer Champion? Transferring schools is an exciting process, but one that usually requires help along the way. Transfer students looking to say thanks to someone who helped them during their transfer journey can now do so through the Transfer Student Success Center’s “Thank a Transfer Champion” initiative. Students are not limited to thanking faculty and staff at Wayne State - they can thank those at partner community colleges as well.
