CUNY Transfer Students

The Transfer Student Success Team is dedicated to supporting your transition to Brooklyn College if you transfer from another CUNY school.

The Student Success Unit is pleased to receive a grant from the Carroll and Milton Petrie Foundation that expands and enhances how the Transfer Student Success Team offers transfer student support. The Transfer Student Success Team consists of a variety of coaches who are here to support transfer students from other CUNY schools to make sure they get the support they need—from admission to graduation. During enrollment periods, the Transfer Student Success Team checks in with all students in the program to ensure they have enrolled and to assist with any issues.
