Transfer Advisory Board - We are not currently accepting applications.

Part of being able to serve a population, like transfers, is constantly knowing what they need and what they are thinking. To discover the answers to these questions, we are seeking 8-10 students to join an advisory board.

As a member, you'll have the opportunity to discuss many aspects of the transfer experience, share your opinion on new initiatives being investigated and developed, and make suggestions about how to improve the transfer experience at EIU.
