Jump Start: Summer Transfer Program

Transfer students have an opportunity to get an early start on their coursework at UofSC and to get connected to campus life in a whole new way.

Get On Track Early

To increase academic success and retention amongst the transfer student population, the Jump Start Summer Transfer Program helps foster stronger connections between transfer students and our campus.

The Jump Start pilot took place in the summer of 2019. In addition to the existing measures of attending transfer orientation, and meeting with an advisor to identify courses missing from degree progression and register for fall classes, students also began coursework and meet peers in their cohort.  Fall 2019 programs for these transfer students include a peer mentoring experience and other social events.

How To Join Jump Start 2020

What to Expect

Students will take two courses in their major for credit in the summer after attending an early transfer orientation.  Students will attend orientation and the courses together as a cohort.

There will be no additional fee to students for this program outside of the summer tuition, fees and orientation costs. 

*Jump Start 2019 was piloted with HRSM major transfer students and is currently being expanded. Please check back for future major offerings as they are added.
