As part of the VCU Howard Hughes Medical Institute Inclusive Excellence Award and in partnership with the VCU Transfer Center, STEM Transitions is a new program that offers resources and support for students at John Tyler Community College and Reynolds Reynolds Community College who plan to transfer to VCU to complete their bachelor’s degree in a math or science discipline.
If you are interested in being part of our STEM Transitions program, please fill out our online interest form.
STEM Transitions Peer Mentor Program
The STEM Transitions Peer Mentor Program is designed for transfer students majoring in a math or science discipline to assist them with the transition to VCU.
Our mentors are students majoring in math and science disciplines who previously transferred to VCU and have successfully navigated the transition.
If you are a current VCU student majoring in a math or science discipline who previously transferred and you feel you could benefit by being paired with a peer mentor, please complete our online mentee interest form.
