    Beware of transfer shock

    Beware of Transfer Shock

    • Your GPA does NOT transfer.

    • This is not like your previous college or university – do not assume UNCG does things the same way.

    • Students who use the Student Success Center, Writing Center, and Speaking Center are more likely to do better in classes and have higher GPAs.

    • Adult students – don’t “parent” your traditional aged peers.

    • If you are a transfer student coming into a program in Junior year – ask about department/faculty protocols.

    • Transfers – hold on to your Transcripts.
