Transfer and non-traditional students can face different challenges while getting ready to arrive at CU-Boulder. From transferring credits to finding financial aid, housing and family daycare, there may be more questions to navigate while gearing up to start classes.

“You’re not doing this alone, there are other adult students out here that are making this life change and you can all do this together,” said Kristyn Sample, a transfer student and vice president of the Non-Traditional Student Organization (NTSO) at CU-Boulder.

For Alex Mulvaney, transfer student and president of NTSO, connecting with an advisor made all the difference. 

"An invaluable resource can be an advisor that knows you, your program and what you’re going through," he said.

New Student & Family Programs can also help incoming students get started in the right direction through the New Student Welcome Experience.
