Register for Transfer Welcome Days!

%%First Name%%: Transfer Welcome Days (TWD) are almost here! It’s the perfect time to meet other transfer students, learn about the U, and have some fun as a new Gopher! You’ll receive a free U of M T-shirt, attend the season's first Gopher football game for free, and make countless connections and memories!


We're not the only ones that think our Transfer Welcome Days program is awesome. We asked past transfer students what they thought and here’s what some of them have said!

“I thought that the TWD program was great. I really liked meeting new students and finding out more about the university.”

“Very open, very welcoming, and very relaxed - something an overwhelmed transfer student like myself appreciated!”

“Great! Very enjoyable, fun and engaging. TWD ambassadors did a great job and I learned a lot of useful information.”

“Incredibly helpful for someone who is nervous about a new school, making friends, and adjusting to life here.”

“It was a very fun way to learn about this new journey that I'm taking at the U.”

“This is needed.”

We really believe that Transfer Welcome Days will help you feel like a Gopher and give you a greater sense of belonging here on campus. Check out the schedule of events here. We can’t wait to see you!
