Transfer students make up more than half of MSU Denver’s population, and according to the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students, transfer populations are often the most diverse population of students on a given campus. Many MSU Denver transfer students are from historically underrepresented groups, are first-generation students, are working full-time and/or are taking care of families.

Transfer students have individual needs dependent on their previous college experience, so it is important to offer individualized assistance and outreach through the Transfer Peer Mentor Program. MSU Denver is also a Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll institution, meaning the University is nationally recognized as an exemplary transfer school.
