Transfer Peer Mentor Program

The Transfer Success Center at the University of Wyoming is pleased announce the Transfer Peer Mentor Program. This new initiative is designed to support the transition experience and long-term success of incoming transfer students.

Peer Mentors serve as academic and social role models for transfer students, sharing personal experiences and best practices as they guide new students through a successful transition to the University. Peer Mentors are leaders, encouragers, sounding boards, and points of contact who work diligently to help transfer students become a part of the UW community.

Peer Mentors also assist with transfer orientation, support the transfer-focused First Year Seminar (FYS) course, and facilitate one-on-one and small group interactions throughout the year.
