Chevron Engineering Transfer 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

What is the Chevron Engineering Transfer Program Extended Orientation?

The Chevron Engineering Transfer Program (through the CREATE initiative) is a multi-day program for transfer students who are newly admitted to engineering disciplines at Mississippi State University. The program is held in the summer prior to attending MSU.

Students will complete an extended orientation to the Bagley College of Engineering and have the opportunity to develop critical academic skills to be successful in common classes taken as a third-year engineering student. Students will interact with engineering faculty and transfer students currently enrolled in engineering. There is NO cost to participate, and participants receive on-campus housing, peer mentoring, some meals, and more.
