Transfer Student Initiative

Creating personalized experiences for transfer students to assist with their overall transition on campus.

We have a growing number of transfers and non-traditional student entering each fall and winter on the UW campus. We value the rich diversity of experiences and opinions transfer students bring to our campus. We aim to deepen the relationship with our current transfer student population and provide distinct services and programs that are specific to the transfer student transition.

Connect: Transfer Student Ambassador/Dawg Daze Leader

Dawg Daze Leaders provide programming and logistical support for all Dawg Daze Welcome Week events. By engaging and interacting with student participants, Dawg Daze Leaders ensure a memorable and enjoyable experience for all involved. Transfer Student Dawg Daze Leaders, or Transfer Student Ambassadors, will staff the Transfer-specific Dawg Daze events, including Transfer Husky Kick-Off. If you are interested in welcoming new students to the University of Washington, especially incoming Transfer students, apply to be a Transfer Student Ambassador/Dawg Daze Leader!
