The transfer student department is terrible.
As a transfer student, I understand that Mines students get top priorities over me but what I'm experiencing is outrageous. Registering for classes is such a hassle; I don't have a true adviser and my transcripts aren't being entered. As an ethnic student, I feel that I'm not being treated equal ; my (white) friends emails gets instant response and every problem (transcript, class registrations) are taken care of immediately. I have to show up in person and ask in order to have my problems addressed. I pay just as much as they do, shouldn't my problems matter the same?
Hello, I realize this is an older post but we have a bit of information. The transfer student department got restructured rather recently, and has two new full time employees who are completely dedicated to transfer students. Their names are Lisa McDowell and Kat. Hopefully with this increase in employment things have gotten better. If not, please respond and we will look in to this further. Always feel free to email us at email@example.com.
I have a "white" name/email address and I have the same issue. I'm a transfer student as well. Lori Pope was really helpful and she knew what to do. Now that she's gone it all seems like a mess and you have to send so many emails to get whatever needed done, and then it may or may not get done without getting an email back. I hope they hire someone like Pope, she was awesome.
