Are you looking for a way to learn more about the Clark School? Would you like to take a course to help you build community with other transfer students? Enroll in ENES150!

ENES150: The TransferLEAD Seminar is a 2 credit course offered each fall. All newly admitted transfer students are encouraged to sign up for this class in order to learn more about campus resources, student identity development, and leadership development. By taking this course, you will be able to:

  • Meet other transfer students;
  • Build community with your peers;
  • Learn more about tutoring and other important resources on campus;
  • Think through your own career development for future success! 

TransferLEAD (Learn, Educate, Adapt, Direct) can be a one semester experience or a yearlong program. Students who complete ENES150 in the fall semester are eligible to apply to serve as TransferLEADERS for the spring term. TransferLEADERS enroll in ENES152 (1 credit) and participate in various outreach events within the college including:

  • Peer-led workshops
  • Community college outreach events
  • New student information sessions

Students selected to serve as TransferLEADERS are eligible to receive a $300 stipend for their service to the college in the spring semester.
