Transfers Helping Transfers, It’s a Beautiful Thing.
The Transfer Ambassador Program, or TAP, pairs current FIU transfer students (Ambassadors) with new transfer students (mentees) to make transitioning to FIU a little easier. Ambassadors offer “just in time” support to new transfers during their first term. Whether it’s helping students navigate campus, find their assigned advisor, or recommend campus resources, ambassadors have the answers! Sure, students can find this information online, but where’s the fun in that? A seasoned pro is what we’re talking about! #PawsUp
TAP does not require a significant time commitment, and the rewards are invaluable! TAP Ambassadors attend a few hours of training that includes program information, expectations, and evaluation. TAP is designed to meet the flexible needs of our new students, so many of the ambassador-mentee interactions are facilitated through group messaging.
Be a Transfer Ambassador
Develop your leadership, communication, and personal skills as you support new students transition to FIU. Empower new Transfer Panthers with your knowledge and insights, and engage in an extra-curricular activity that is valued by employers. We are looking for engaging, supportive, and reliable Ambassadors.
Be a Transfer Mentee
Jumpstart your learning by meeting peers who have successfully navigated their transition to FIU. Being a mentee is a great way to gain practical advice and support, increase your academic and social confidence, and become more empowered to achieving your goals – all while making new friends and enjoying your time as a Transfer Panther.
