Support Transfer Student Leadership and Success Today

Transfer students make up 25% of the total undergraduate student population at OSU and account for a quarter of all new incoming students. The transfer student population is expected to grow over the next several years as higher education adjusts to a changing landscape at the national level including the increase of free or reduced community college tuition. Transfer students are a more diverse population with over 35% coming from marginalized or under-represented minority populations. They have a higher rate of need with 31% being Pell Eligible as compared to 23% for our total student body. Transfer students are retained at 83.4% and graduate at 67.2% which is nearly 15% higher than first-time full-time freshman. By supporting our transfer student leadership and success initiatives you are supporting so much more than that. You are supporting veterans, adults returning to school for their degrees or because they are changing careers, families and parents trying to better their lives and the 75% of our transfer students who are from Oklahoma and who give back to their communities by staying in the workforce here. 

Donations will help support transfer student leadership and success by going toward important initiatives and programs like:

  • Transfer Student Ambassador Program
    • Leadership Scholarship
    • Leadership Training and Retreat
    • Meetings and events with other students
    • Recognition Ceremony for their achievements as a transfer student at OSU (cord/stole to wear at graduation)
  • Transfer Mentorship Program
    • Programming and events to bring together a community of mentors and mentees
    • Mentor training and team building activities
  • Oklahoma Statewide Transfer Student Leadership Conference

  • National Transfer Student Week activities
    • Tau Sigma National Honor Society Induction Ceremony
    • Transfer Meet and Greet with faculty/staff
    • Transfer Specific activities within each academic college
