The SEEK Transfer Program provides participants with academic and counseling services that help transfer students transition into Hunter College. The program consists of an Orientation, a SEEK Transfer Course and a SEEK Transfer Club.
During Orientation, participants have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Hunter College campus and culture. The academic policies and graduation requirements are reviewed to guide course planning and successful completion of Hunter College's undergraduate degree.
During their first semester, participants partake in the SEEK Transfer Club. The SEEK Transfer Club provides participants with access to workshops, opportunities to connect with fellow transfer students and occasions to engage in leadership and groups activities. All incoming SEEK transfer students will become members of the SEEK Transfer Club. Club meetings enable conversations with current transfers, career development services, summer planning and program reflections. Participants must attend at least two club meetings.
The goals of the SEEK Transfer Program are:
- to integrate participants into Hunter College;
- to ensure that participants understand Hunter College's policies and SEEK Program policies;
- to review Hunter Core, graduation, and TAP requirements, as they pertain to the transfer student population;
- to provide participants with counseling, tutorial, and academic support services.
Transfer Students who were enrolled in the College Discovery (CD) Program and completed their associate degree or who were enrolled in SEEK, HEOP, or EOP programs in their previous college are eligible for participation in the SEEK Program at Hunter. Please note that acceptance to Hunter College does not guarantee acceptance to the Hunter SEEK Program.
