National Transfer Student Week

National Transfer Student Week (NTSW) was started by the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) as a celebration of transfer students and the professionals who support them. Transfer students here at Colorado State University (CSU) make up 30% of our total student population. That is why this fall, we are continuing our yearly celebration of National Transfer Student Week. This celebration of transfer students is meant for the entire campus community. This fall, NTSW will be celebrated from Monday, October 17 – Friday, October 21. Attend any event to receive a free Transfer Programs @ CSU water bottle!
