Transfer Interest Groups…or TrIGs for short

By Namura Nkeze, Transfer and Commuter Student Programs Coordinator, First Year Programs

A TrIG has nothing to do with Trignometry but it has EVERYTHING to do with helping incoming transfer students transition well into the UW. TrIGs stands for Transfer Interest Group. They are 2-credit courses taught by currently enrolled students who understand the transfer process through firsthand experiences. Topics discussed in the TrIG include, but are not limited to, accessing academic resources, student involvement, undergraduate research and disciplinarity.

TrIGS are offered based upon academic area and are a great course to add on to any schedule. You will find information on last year's TrIG program offering at http://fyp.washington.edu/transfer_commuter/trigs/. This site will be updated in June. Enrolling in a TrIG your first quarter is easy. During your Summer Advising and Orientation session you will receive all the information you need in your Advising and Orientation folder.

TrIGs are a great way to get to know your new academic home. If you have questions about TrIGs please e-mail figtrig@uw.edu.
