Transitions UGS 101

Transitions is a eight-week, one-credit hour course designed to assist students in making a smooth transition to Pittsburg State University.

The goal of the Transitions course is to provide transfer students the opportunity to interact with students who are sharing in their same experiences. Students who participate are trained in the use of the university-wide enrollment system (GUS), are exposed to a wide range of campus activities, are introduced to community services and amenities, and are informed of campus services and resources.

Transitions is available in the fall and spring semesters and is recommended for all transfer students.
