Guided by a conceptual model of student involvement, this study examined the patterns of undergraduate student involvement in academic and social activities and student services, focusing on a comparison between transfer and native students at a large, Midwestern public research university. The results indicated that compared to native students, transfer students did not seem to differ much in academic involvement; however, transfers were less involved socially, used fewer student support services, and participated less in campus events and student organizations.
