Transfer Student Orientation


Although you have attended a college or university before, there are many opportunities at ERC for you to expand your knowledge and develop skills as global citizens.  We look forward to helping you navigate those opportunities and the university when we meet at Transfer Orientation.  All transfer students are required to attend one of the sessions below. Orientation is an essential and mandatory program for all incoming UC San Diego students.
