Transfer Seminar Baruch College logo


Transfer Seminar will serve as a vital gateway to a transfer student’s academic and social transition to Baruch and will be specifically tailored to address the integral needs of this unique population.  It will serve to engage transfer students, incorporate public policy issues into the College culture, and demonstrate the power of civic collaboration in overcoming challenging issues. The Transfer Seminar curriculum will be guided by a series of nonpartisan research guides produced by Public Agenda. Topics will include: addressing transfer shock, understanding the job market, practicing ethically sound behavior, developing a sense of integrity, exploring immigration, discovering tools for academic success, and grasping future directions.

Transfer Seminar Fellows and Assistant Fellows can be instrumental in the successful transition of a transfer student’s life at Baruch. The course will be administered over 10 sessions lasting 75 minutes each. These sessions will be facilitated by one Fellow and one Assistant Fellow.
