• Transfer Student Success

    Hamline University recognizes that transfer students have unique needs. As a transfer-friendly institution, we provide individualized support for transfer students at every stage, starting from the first visit and continuing throughout the academic and social journey to graduation.

    October 21-25, 2019 is National Transfer Student Week!

    National Transfer Student Week was started by the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students as a celebration of transfer students and the professionals who support them. We’re hosting a series of events to recognize students who became Pipers via the transfer process. Join us, share the story of your journey to Hamline, and connect with other transfer students!
