Transfer Student Week: October 18 to 22

Did you know there are more than 11,000 transfer students at Humber? That calls for a celebration! Transfer students make up 50 per cent of our student population, and we want to share their stories, triumphs, and goals with the Humber community. 

As an employee at Humber, we invite you to join us. Maybe you teach an amazing transfer student or maybe you were one yourself? Use your voice during Transfer Student Week to give our transfer students the recognition they deserve!

Live Sessions

Transfer Student/Alumni Panel and Q&A 
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Students transfer at different times in their lives and for many different reasons. Our panelists will discuss why they chose Humber, the biggest successes and challenges of their transfer journey, tips for success for new and "not so new" students. We will also discuss, from the student perspective, how staff/faculty have or could make the transition to Humber even better.
