• We are always thrilled when transfer students choose Lee University. We want to provide resources to make this transition the best experience possible. Below you will find general information about some of these resources, and we look forward to more personally assisting you when you arrive to campus.

    LEEU-102A and LEEU-102B

    All incoming transfer students should enroll in both LEEU-102A: Global Perspectives Seminar and LEEU-102B: Biblical and Theological Foundations for Benevolence within their first two semesters at Lee University. Each of these classes is a core requirement for all transfer students and will offer the opportunity to learn more about Lee University's core values, as well as the integration of faith and learning.

    Transfer Student Leaders

    During New Student Orientation, transfer students will be introduced to the team of Transfer Student Leaders and the Office of First-Year Programs staff. At this time, you will have the opportunity to connect with a specific Transfer Student Leader and a group of new transfer students who can serve as a point of connection throughout your first semester and beyond. The Office of First-Year Programs and Transfer Student Leaders also host various informational sessions and social events for all transfer students throughout the year. Transfer Student Leaders can serve as a valuable source of help and support during the transition to Lee University.

    New Student Orientation (NSO)

    Make sure to stop by the NSO Check-In on Friday, August 19, in the Science and Math Complex between 8 a.m. and 6 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

    All incoming transfer students are required to attend the “Transitions” dinner and information session on Tuesday, August 23, from 5–7 p.m. This session 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 service@leeuniversity.edu or contact your Transfer Student Leader.
