Peer Coaching/Programming 

Peer Coaching 
The Transfer Peer Coaching program is a peer mentorship program that connects transfer students with a student leader on campus who has experienced first hand what it means to Transfer to USF St Petersburg. Transfer Peer Coaches are experienced USF St. Petersburg campus transfer students who serve as part of the New Student Experience team. All incoming transfer students who are transferring from a Florida institution with an AA degree will automatically be assigned a Peer Coach. However, all Transfer students can opt-in to the program and be assigned a Transfer Peer Coach! If you are a transfer student interested in the Transfer Peer Coach program and would like to be paired, email us at

Interested in becoming Transfer Peer Coach? Check out our recruitment page for more details.  

Transfer Times Newsletter 
The Transfer Times is a newsletter aimed at providing transfer students with information about transitioning to USF St. Petersburg campus, events on campus, and more. The Transfer Times Newsletter will be posted on our Transfer Student Facebook Page and emailed out once a month. 
Signature Programs 
Transfer Welcome Night: Hosted during the Week of Welcome (WOW) at the beginning of each semester, Transfer Welcome Night aims to prepare transfer students for their first semester at USF St. Petersburg campus. Transfer Welcome Night offers spaces for students to meet the Transfer Peer Coaches, build community with other Transfer students, and directly ask staff members any questions they need the answers to in order to have a successful semester. New Student Experience staff will also lead discussions surrounding topics on how to prepare for the upcoming semester. 

Transfer Connections: Join us for Transfer Connections once a month to meet other transfer students, learn about USF St. Petersburg campus, and more! Be sure to register for a BullsConnect account to learn more.  

Learning Journeys: Learning Journeys are faculty- or staff-led activities, focusing on an academic specialty, hobby, or interest of the faculty or staff member. Geared towards second-year and transfer students, Learning Journeys provide an opportunity for students to learn more about potential career paths while getting to know faculty and staff outside of the classroom.
