The Transfer Advisory Council (TrAC) is comprised of representatives from across OSU's undergraduate colleges, student affairs units, enrollment management within the various campuses and modalities. This group contributes to the awareness, improvement, and expansion of services related to the transfer student population within Oregon State University.

The Transfer Advisory Council will initiate and contribute to ongoing efforts in support of transfer students at OSU, aligned with university priorities outlined in the current Strategic Plan 4.0 and the future Strategic Plan. Additionally, this council may work in conjunction with various committees and task forces to contribute to a comprehensive university-wide plan to improve the transition experience for students.

Specifically, the Transfer Advisory Council will:

  • Recommend best practices. Identify and recommend best practices that enrich a smooth transition for students into OSU through work with students, staff, and faculty.

  • Enhance Communication. Evaluate and develop proper communication channels that streamline outreach to students, as well as delivering timely information to transfer student professionals.

  • Improve Credit Articulation Processes. Determine strategies for improving credit articulation processes, and work to provide information that is readily accessible, easy to understand, and transparent.

  • Identify Relevant Data. Develop metrics to track transfer student progress and success from prearrival through graduation. Supplementary metrics will be evaluated as needs arise.
