Morehead State celebrates National Transfer Student Week

The Office of Transition Services at Morehead State University will be celebrating National Transfer Student Week from Oct. 21 through Oct. 25. The National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) organizes National Transfer Student Week to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them on their journey.  

“Transfer students are a huge part of our overall campus community. We have students attending each of our campuses, but also enrolled online from all over the world,” said Jen Timmermann, director of the Office of Transition Services. “This annual celebration gives us an opportunity to spotlight not only those students but also the many transfer advocates at MSU who support them.”   

There are several events taking place during National Transfer Student Week at MSU, including a Transfer Student Appreciation Reception from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, in the first-floor lobby of the Adron Doran University Center (ACUC). MSU Chapter of Tau Sigma, the National Honor Society for Transfer Students, is sponsoring this program and light refreshments will be available. Students will receive “I’m a Transfer” stickers and be asked to autograph the “Board of Transfers.” MSU Transfer Student social media will highlight “Transfer Stories” from current transfer students throughout the week and each regional campus will also host programming.  

On Friday, Oct. 25, Morehead State will host Transfer Spirit Day and invite the entire campus to wear blue and gold in honor of transfer students.  

According to NISTS, transfer students make up 38% of all students in higher education. MSU provides a multitude of services for prospective transfer students, such as regional transfer advisors, the Eagle Express Joint Admission program with Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) partners, unofficial program evaluations and monthly Transfer Visit Day programs. Students transferring from KCTCS may also apply free using the promo code “KCTCS.” All transfer students are automatically considered for transfer scholarships, including the Kentucky Transfer Scholarship.
