A King-Chavez-Parks Initiative
The Alma College Transition Assistance Program, a State of Michigan King-Chavez-Parks grant funded program, works to provide Pell Grant eligible and first-generation transfer students the help they need when navigating a new institution and all it has to offer. Transfer students that enroll in the Transition Assistance Program will participate in monthly on-campus workshops, group social events as well as have the opportunity to work with current transfer students that are trained KCP mentors.
