Transfer Peer Mentors @ DePaul

Transfer Peer Mentors

The Transfer Peer Mentor program aims to jumpstart your success at DePaul by ensuring a successful transition. You will be guided through your first year at DePaul with a one on one peer mentor to support you. The mentors are transfers beyond their first year who have shown success in academics and out of class leadership. This gives you an immediate connection with a trusted resource whenever you need it.


Students receive an email invitation to participate in the program about two weeks prior to the quarter they begin. If you do not receive this, email us at transfer@depaul.edu to inquire.


DePaul utilizes software to match you with a mentor based on your largest interest. This could be identities, college or area of study, past experiences and more! If you are a transfer student requesting a new mentor, just email us at transfer@depaul.edu


The mentor will guide you in engaging conversations. This could be out of class interest, academics or more! You can also discuss challenges and opportunities of their transfer experience in your first year.
The mentor can be your accountability partner and be sure you know of all the great academic and experiential resources at DePaul. They can jumpstart your involvement!
