Transfer Colloquium (SC 201)

Transfer Colloquium (SC 201) is designed to help you transition to Simpson, socially and academically. In this small seminar, you will connect with other transfers, learn about campus resources and opportunities (advising, career services, internships, study abroad), reflect on future academic/career plans, and improve your writing skills.

Transfer Colloquium is a 1-credit class and meets twice a week for the first eight weeks of the semester. Because it is capped at 18, it is a great chance to meet a Simpson professor and other transfer students. Transfer Colloquium counts as a Written Communication course in the Engaged Citizenship Curriculum.

If you have not yet declared a major, your SC 201 professor will be your academic advisor until you do so. A current Simpson student (SC Leader) will also help you in your transition to Simpson.

When you enroll in your first Simpson courses in consultation with an advisor, you will select an SC 201. To set up this meeting, arrange a campus visit by calling Admissions at 515-961-1660 (local) or 800-362-2454 (toll free).  You can also call Michael Norris, Director of Transfer Enrollment, directly at 515-961-1697.
