Transfer Program highlights include:

  • Transfer Families - Facilitated by transfer mentors, these small groups meet bi-weekly to help transfer students adjust to their new home. To sign up for a family, please reach out to Kiara Jackson, kiara.jackson@pepperdine.edu
  • Monthly Events - Each month the transfer team hosts one event to gather the transfers altogether. The events range from game nights to themed parties. To stay updated on our programming, follow us on Instagram, @PepperdineTransferStudentAlliance.
