Texas State Transfer Champions

Learn about this year's Texas State Transfer Champions. Transfer Champions are the professional faculty and staff who make a difference in the lives of transfer students. TXST students nominated this year's champions.

Celebrating Transfer Students

This year's theme is “Full Steam Ahead.”

During NTSW, we want to “add fuel” to your journey by connecting you with tools and resources that will help you achieve your academic and career goals. Visit the NTSW calendar for events.
