Pathways Guide for eTransfers – Winter 2022 Edition

Week by week guide of what to expect in Winter 2022.  When the eTransfer Center opened it’s doors, engineering transfers asked for a week-by-week guide of what happens through their first year to help with managing their experience and in an attempt to not ‘miss-the-boat’.  While NOT exhaustive, the Pathways Guide for eTransfers offers a good look at what to expect.

Here are some examples of important information for Winter 2022:

1. Faculty Advising – weeks 1 – 3.  A hold will be placed on your record if not completed by week 4 of Spring 2022.

2. Paid summer academic Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) info-session on Tuesday, January 11.

3. Winter 2022 Engineering & Technical Career Fair registration is open.  Event will be held on January 18 & 19.  Sign-up for sessions with recruiters.

4. Graduating in Spring 2022?  Don’t forget to complete your Degree Audit.

5. Time to check your ESAP eligibility.
