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.
