Transfer Scholar Leadership Program

The Transfer Scholar Leadership Program was created to recognize the outstanding achievements of students transferring to Pittsburg State University from a community college. In addition, program goals include encouraging and promoting involvement at PSU by transfer students who have demonstrated their leadership potential while in the community college.

Students selected for the program participate in a Transfer Scholar Leadership Transitions course their first semester as well as complete no more than 15 hours of service hours each of their first three semesters. Service activities will focus on activities and programs that assist other transfer students in making a successful transition to PSU.
