National Transfer Student Week 2021

October 18–22, 2021 Organized by NISTS

Dakota County Technical College is participating in National Transfer Student Week (NTSW) Monday, October 18, through Friday, October 22, 2021. The week-long event is organized by NISTS (National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students) to celebrate transfer students and the professionals who support them on their journeys.

According to NISTS: “Today’s students are transferring more than ever before. As transfer champions, it’s vitally important that we build awareness of common transfer barriers and the diverse student needs and identities within our transfer populations. Although the transition between institutions is inherently complex, we believe that transfer is a good and valuable pathway to bachelor’s degree completion.”

Join us for this annual event, every third week of October, to challenge assumptions, build empathy, and instill transfer pride on your campus.
