Welcome to the Transfer, Returning, and Veteran (TRV) Program

Mission Statement

The Transfer, Returning, & Veteran (TRV) Program is designed to support these specific underserved populations of students. We understand and value the unique experiences and perspectives non-traditional students bring to our vibrant campus community. The TRV mission is to celebrate the diversity of our students and to assist in the discovery of services available to UC Merced students. We accomplish our mission by offering peer mentoring, academic support services, and a community of engagement.

Important Changes to Scholar-Fellow Meetings

Due to COVID-19, all scholar-fellow meetings will now be held via Zoom. Schedule a meeting like you would normally do. Once a fellow receives your request, they will reach out to you with more details.
