The Transitions Learning Community

The Transitions Learning Community is designed for students transferring to the department needing the second- year series of courses as well as interested sophomores continuing their studies. Students earn one credit for the successful completion of this program. Two peer mentors will be available to assist students and help coordinate study groups for common classes. The NREM Transitions Learning Community is open to NREM students regardless of where they choose to live. We meet once per week in a classroom setting to discuss classes, plan events, host speakers of interest, and overall check in with peer mentors and the coordinator. There are a variety of optional field trips and community service projects offered outside of class time as well.


The goals of the Transitions Learning Community include developing study skills, providing a positive social setting, improving time management skills, professional development, and creating a strong sense of belonging within NREM and Iowa State University.

How do I sign up?

Sign up for the NREM Transitions Learning Community is done at the time of class registration. You may enroll for fall, spring, or both semesters.
