Transfer Student Ambassador Program
The Transfer Student Ambassador Program was established at the end of the 2021-2022 Academic Year. As a Transfer Student Ambassador your role would be to create connections for new and returning transfer students. This could include simple things like sharing the best places to eat in town, telling new students what being a transfer student at OSU is really like, providing peer support, and helping other transfer students find their home on campus. Our Transfer Student Ambassadors are here to help other transfer students' transition to OSU be as smooth and seamless as possible.
Transfer Student Ambassadors will have opportunities for leadership development through the Hargis Leadership Institute, Oklahoma Statewide Transfer Student Success Conference, involvement in events and activities for National Transfer Student Week, participating in Welcome Week, and much more!
Students can apply for a Transfer Student Ambassador position after completion of their first semester at OSU.

What was your transfer experience like?
"I transferred spring semester of my freshman year here to OSU from a junior college and it was the best decision I ever made. Oklahoma State has felt like home from the moment I stepped onto campus. While being a transfer can be a little scary, my best advice is to never let any opportunity pass by, whether it’s meeting a fellow student who may turn into a friend or taking a jump into a leadership position. Being a transfer, it’s easy to feel a few steps behind, but just taking advantage of everything OSU has to offer can make a world of difference as a new transfer!"
