Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success

Transfer Students

We're glad you made the decision to transfer to Michigan Tech! Whether you transferred from a community college or a four-year university, the Wahtera Center for Student Success is here to provide you with the information you need to be successful at Tech.

To make your transition easier, we provide a Transfer Assistant—a current Michigan Tech transfer student who acts as a peer leader, plans events, is available to answer questions, and more. Our Transfer Assistant:

  • Maintains regular office hours where you can pop in to chat or to get questions answered;
  • Sends regular updates to transfer-l@mtu.edu, the transfer student listserv;
  • Writes a weekly blog, Transitions;
  • Plans free transfer student events to help you get involved, adapt to University life, and stay connected on campus.

Meet our current Transfer Assistant. If you’re a transfer student and you have questions or concerns, email transfers@mtu.edu or call 906-487-3558.
