Transfer Pipeline Program

The HCAP Transfer Pipeline Program provides peer mentorship and support to transfer students during their first semester at Hunter College. While open to all, this program focuses on Asian American and other first-generation college students who are transferring into Hunter from other CUNY community colleges. This program is supported by the Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP) and the BMCC-Hunter AANAPISI Bridge Initiative (ABI). HCAP/ABI programming is open to all regardless of identity.

Through the HCAP Transfer Pipeline Program students can expect to:

  • Reflect and share how their own identities influence their experiences in college.
  • Identify and access Hunter’s network of resources.
  • Feel connected to a larger support community of fellow transfer students and peer mentors to increase their sense of belonging at Hunter College.

Transfer Peer Mentors receive hands-on leadership coaching and skills training to become peer mentors who can assist incoming transfer students in navigating their Hunter experience. Learn more about our past Transfer Peer Mentors by visiting our cohort page.

Transfer Mentees are matched with a peer mentor and receive support during their first semester as a new transfer student at Hunter College.
