Transition Assistance Program (TAP)

Transition Assistance Program

The Alma College Transition Assistance Program (TAP) provides transfer and non-traditional students the help they need when navigating a new institution and all it has to offer.

Through TAP, you will participate in monthly developmental events that support your academic, career, and financial success. You can also live on campus in the Transfer Living Learning Community, which will help you get the most out of your time at Alma and translate your previous college and life experience into academic success.

The benefits of TAP include:

  • A student mentor that was also a transfer student.
  • Direct access to financial counseling, academic advising and career development.
  • Access to faculty mentors through workshops and social events.
  • A close-knit community of students with similar experience.
  • Access to the Transfer Living Learning Community, a residency-based academic support program for all incoming transfer and non-traditional students.
  • An increased potential for success at Alma and beyond.

Plus, take part in events like these:

  • Weekly social and academic get-togethers: Grab a coffee at Starbucks and study with TAP or join our late-night study sessions in the CSO – we meet for a few hours each week to spend time on our studies and get help from peer mentors.

  • Monthly social activities: Come relax with other TAP students at games nights, movie marathons, craft nights, and holiday themed events.

  • Monthly developmental workshops: Develop important professional skills, like how to bolster your resume or get a head start on financial planning, or help us plan a community-wide, TAP-led volunteer event at our student support workshops.
