For returning transfer students, we want to make sure that you're on the right path and didn't forget anything.
You can use the checklist below to verify that you're headed in the right direction.
___1. Have you confirmed your major? Nothing is more important that making sure the degree program you're in is the right one for you. We understand that you needed to declare a major before transferring in, we want to make sure it's the right major for you. The Compass has some great tools to help you confirm your choice in degree program.
___2. Have you started your resume? You most likely are planning on graduating in about a year and a half and that's not a lot of time and it will go by fast. It's important that you get working on that resume now so that you're prepared when it's time to look for jobs. Our Career Services office can get you going.
___3. Have you planned an internship? Employers want to see that you have some real world work experience and an internship is a great way to do that. Internships are very flexible and are easy to work into even the busiest schedule. Check with Experience Based Education for more information.
___4. Are you volunteering your time? Again, employers want to see that you've been active outside the classroom and are contributing to your community. The Center for Service Learning and Community Service can match you up with a volunteer experience that will fit your schedule and interests.
a. Have you thought about being a mentor? The MOST Program is always looking for returning transfer students who want to help incoming transfer students. You've lived the experience, now you can help someone else survive their first year. Give it some thought.
___5. Have you thought about study abroad? So many transfer students don't think they have the time to participate in study abroad or they don't want to make the time. Studying abroad can be a great way to earn credits and get some great experience outside the classroom. Having knowledge of other cultures and countries make you a very marketable person. Think about the study abroad program.
___6. Are you a leader? Don't forget that leadership roles on campus are abundant and they're important! Taking on a leadership role in a club, organization, or department provide you with valuable experience working with others and can be great resume builders. Check out the Leadership Development Program.
___7. How many faculty do you know outside the classroom? Faculty aren't just here to teach, they're also here to help provide you direction for the future. Make sure that you're connecting with some faculty outside the classroom.
Hopefully this checklist will help steer you on the path to getting the most out of your college experience and making yourself a more marketable employee. If you need further assistance or want to talk to someone more about any of the above suggestions, feel free to stop by the Compass for some 1-on-1 help.
