Make sure to bring a printed copy of your fall course schedule to this event.

Transfer Student Welcome

Join us as we enjoy a sweet treat to help you cool off at the end of the day.  Also, bring a t-shirt from your previous institution to trade in for a Tennessee t-shirt.  Additionally, we will be giving away door prizes such as UNITE Memberships, Dining Dollars, and signed athletic gear (must be present to win).

The Transfer Transition Guides are excited to reveal RockyTOP, a new “Transfer Outreach Program.”

RockyTOP groups exist to encourage peer-to-peer interaction and provide academic resources in a social setting. If interested, you will be assigned a mentor within your academic college (if possible) and provided with social opportunities to participate in each month.

As a result of participating, you will be connected to your peers, faculty, and staff on campus. RockyTOP groups offer individual contact with peer mentors monthly and on an as-needed/preferred basis. As a member of RockyTOP, you will be able to learn more about resources on campus like the Student Success Center, Career Services, the Student Writing Center, and more.  Being part of RockyTOP will help you stay on TOP of your UT experience!
