TransferFIT is a bootcamp specifically designed for transfer students to help successfully ease the transition to the University of Nevada, Reno by offering realistic university experiences prior to the start of the fall semester.

TransferFIT takes place over a single weekend, August 15 and 16, 2020.

What to expect during TransferFIT

Transfer students come to the University with a variety of experiences and needs. TransferFIT works to address some of these needs by providing students with opportunities unique to our campus, and allowing them the space to make connections that can help students thrive throughout their college career.

In TransferFIT students will:

  • Get to know other transfer students
  • Work with a student mentor
  • Network with faculty in your academic department
  • Become familiar with the University campus
  • Practice using student resources
  • Participate in Welcome Week events, such as Opening Ceremony and the kick-off barbecue
