• 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 19-23, 2020 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.  This year we're celebrating a COVID-friendly HU Transfer Student Week with a series of virtual conversations on a variety of topics.
