Find What You're Looking For During Transfer Student Week

HSU’s transfer student population continues to increase, and for the first time, this fall there are more incoming transfer students than incoming freshmen.

Are you a transfer student? You've been successful in college before, but may need some assistance navigating HSU. Tranfer Student Week is October 18-22 — we hope you'll check out resources and 20+ online SkillShops to learn more, ask questions and expand your connections throughout HSU. 

At Humboldt State, we encourage you to pursue your interests and follow your own path — in the classroom and beyond.
