You are a W2R student if you are transferring from FRCC to CSU in a science major.

W2R is a free program to all FRCC–>CSU transfer students in the sciences. Unless you intentionally opt-out, you are automatically enrolled. 🙂

Join the W2R Learning Community

W2R is interested in your long-term career success. That’s why we offer tips on a successful transition to CSU and professional development opportunities through our learning community (LC).

If you are a W2R NSF Scholar or a W2R NIH Research Trainee, you are automatically a part of the learning community!

We invite all other W2R students to apply to join our learning community, the best way to engage with our overall program.

The W2R LC combines a 1-credit, upper division class called “Becoming a Scientist” with peer mentorship, customized advising, and enrollment in other required classes for students in our majors (physics, calc, o-chem). This combo of services will enhance your first semester experience at CSU and set you up for continued success in the few remaining semesters you have at CSU.

In the LC, you will:

  • improve your networking skills
  • develop your skills and identity as a “scientist”
  • learn about all the research and internship opportunities available to science students at CSU
  • make some friends, which really helps motivate you throughout your time here CSU. Friends make us better!

Join the W2R LC by applying here.

Graduating Seniors

It’s possible that your academic department is doing something to help you get ready to graduate at the end of this semester. As a W2R student, you have extra services at your disposal.

  • Commencement info, including cap/gown, tickets, and ceremony time
  • Post-college career counseling and/or graduate school application advising
  • A double check through your Degree Audit (aka DARS) to confirm you’ve done everything right
  • A graduation cord to accent your cap and gown outfit at commencement!

Are you graduating this semester? Look out for an email from us around mid-semester, to fill out our Exit Survey and to receive your graduation cord.
