UNC Asheville transition Student Programs

UNC Asheville transition Student Programs We support transfer students, adult learners, and new students through programming and opportunities to connect to campus and friends. The Transitions program is designed to ensure that transfer students, non-traditional students, and new students succeed in their first year at UNC Asheville and find a connection to the university which keeps them retained at the university through graduation.

Students are automatically enrolled in the Transitions program and may opt-out at any time. All students receive monthly emails that highlight upcoming events, deadlines, social activities, and other important information.

Mission: Facilitate the transition process for new UNC Asheville students and families by promoting opportunities to connect to and engage in our campus and surrounding community. Promote student success by providing intentional programs and services that support co-curricular, academic, and personal development. Honor and appreciate the various backgrounds and experiences of students and parents, while also working with them in a personalized manner to foster and develop a sense of community.

We had a wonderful time last night celebrating the newest inductees into UNC Asheville's Eta Iota Chapter of Tau Sigma.

Tau Sigma is a national honor society designed exclusively for transfer students. Its mission is to recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students.

All inductees obtained a 3.5 GPA or greater during their first semester at UNC Asheville. Although all of our inductees were not able to attend, we had an impressive group attend the induction ceremony.

Congratulations to each and every one of you! We appreciate our transfer students here at UNC Asheville and celebrate in your great accomplishments!
