    Transfer Student Leaders

    During New Student Orientation, transfer students will be introduced to the Transfer Student Leadership Council (TSLC) and the Office of First-Year Programs staff. At this time, you will have the opportunity to connect with a Transfer Student Leader and a group of new transfer students who can serve as a point of connection for you throughout your first semester and beyond. The Office of First-Year Programs and Transfer Student Leaders will also host various informational sessions and social events, specifically tailored to transfer students, throughout your first semester at Lee.

    New Student Orientation (NSO)

    Make sure to stop by the NSO Check-In on Friday, August 14, in the Science and Math Complex between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. You will receive a packet of important information and will learn the next steps for your transition into life at Lee.

    “Transitions” Session (Required)

    All incoming transfer students are required to attend the “Transitions” dinner and information session on Wednesday, August 19, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. After your first day of classes, join us at the School of Religion where we will introduce you to key staff members, offices, and programs at Lee. This meeting will include sessions about Financial Aid, Global Perspectives, StrengthsQuest, service-learning, and other academic support services.

    Service-Learning at Lee

    Service-learning is a key aspect of the student experience at Lee University. On the Sunday of NSO weekend, all new students will participate in Deke Day by serving at various locations in the Cleveland area. This service event will also give you a head start on your service-learning graduation requirement. Transfer students are required to complete the equivalent of ten hours of service for each semester that they are enrolled at Lee. Your Transfer Student Leader and the Office of First-Year Programs can help you connect with service projects led by transfer students or with other service opportunities. If you have specific questions about the service-learning program, you can email the Leonard Center at or contact your Transfer Student Leader.
