Why Transfer

Kari Emm (775) 682-5928

STOMP (Student Transfer Outreach Mentoring Program) mentors help in the recruitment of transfer students, increase attendance of transfer students, retention of transfer students, as well as participate in Nevada Bound, Yield events, and New Student Orientation. STOMP members go to different colleges and help recruit students  looking to transfer; they attend T.A.P. events to help the Transfer Admissions coordinator relay information to students as well as help encourage students by telling them their personal stories. Fill out the Transfer Ambassador Application on-line or visit the Office of Prospective Students office in the Fitzgerald Building and request application from the Transfer Coordinator. The application will be turned into the Transfer Ambassador-Director of Recruitment.
