Transfer Year Experience

The Transfer Year Experience (TYE) is a community designed to support the transition of transfer students from their previous institution to the University of Michigan. TYE allows transfer students access to a community where they feel immediately at home, learn to navigate campus resources and build intentional and lasting connections.

Living in a community of other transfers, residents of TYE are able to quickly connect over shared experiences and learn from each other’s individual strengths.
