TSPA Application

Apply to be a TSPA!

Second-year and third-year students are encouraged to apply by November 23rd at 9:00 a.m.

The Transfer Student Peer Advisor (TSPA) program matches upperclass students with incoming transfer students. TSPAs serve as resources for incoming transfer students as they adjust to both the social and academic cultures of the University of Virginia. Throughout the year, TSPAs are responsible for building community among transfer students and advocating for transfer student needs, in partnership with Orientation & New Student Programs and the Office of the Dean of Students.
