Transfer Ambassadors are students who also transferred from another college or university, so they can relate to the challenges that our students may face during their first semester at UNT. Our Transfer Ambassadors provide one-on-one assistance and
mentoring to new students. If you ever need guidance, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Transfer Ambassador! You can make an appointment or just walk in to speak with them regarding a variety of topics, including:
Understanding what courses will transfer to UNT
Making social connections on campus
Choosing a major
Getting involved on campus
To contact a Trans Am, please call
