Chevron Engineering Transfer Program

What is the Engineering Transfer Bridge Program?

The Bagley College of Engineering and the Chevron Corporation Transfer Program are pleased to provide support to transfer students from community college to Mississippi State University Starkville and Gulf Coast Campuses. The goal of the program is to increase student retention, ease the transition from the community college system to the four-year institution, and enhance performance of students from community colleges. This program is open to all MSU students with an emphasis to increase the participation of women and students from underrepresented racial groups.

Program components include but are not limited to the following:

  • Week-Long Transfer Bridge / Orientation
  • Tutoring Support for Classes with Highest DFW Rates (Defined as “W” for withdrawal and letter grades of D or F)
  • Supplemental academic advising
  • Chevron Industry Visit
  • Mixers with Chevron Professional
  • Study Hall / Tutorial Services
  • Book Stipends
  • Recruiting Events for Pre-Engineering Students

The Chevron Transfer Program will host a summer bridge session aimed at providing programming for transfer students entering engineering disciplines at Mississippi State University. Students will complete a one-week introduction to MSU as well as an intensive overview of common classes taken as a 3rd year engineering student. Housing and meal stipends will be provided to all participants to reside on the MSU campus.
