Transfer Week

October 17 - 21, 2022

The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) is sponsoring the sixth annual National Transfer Student Week. This year’s theme is “Plug Into Transfer”. The Kent State University community is excited to participate in recognizing those students who became Golden Flashes via the transfer process. Below is a calendar of events that transfer students and transfer student advocates are encouraged to attend.

The goals of the week are to help students connect to the university, celebrate transfer students and educate faculty and staff about this student population. You can learn more about the purpose of the week at the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) website.
