Our programs are educational opportunities for all transfer students to learn about campus resources and make new connections with fellow.

Programming Pillars

The four pillars arranged in a circle

Transitions and Beyond

The Commuter Assistant and Transfer Assistant programs are designed to help ease transitions for students who are new to the University of Miami. Campus Transitions and Beyond programs put an emphasis on resources at students’ disposal to help enhance their academic, personal and professional development at the University.

Campus Involvement

The Commuter Assistant and Transfer Assistant programs are designed to help students feel a sense of belonging at the University of Miami. Campus Involvement programs are centered on how students can find their niche by exploring areas within their interests and outside of their comfort zone.

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

The Commuter Assistant and Transfer Assistant programs are designed to help students feel connected to one another and assist in broadening their understanding of identities and ways of living that may be different than their own.

Surviving and Thriving

The Commuter Assistant and Transfer Assistant programs are designed to help students understand the importance of self-care, personal-responsibility and overall well-being and how to manage all of these areas as a University of Miami student.

Tau Sigma
