Transfer Connect and Success Program

Transfer Connect & Success Program

As a transfer student, you only have a couple of years to get to know campus resources, faculty, staff and fellow students. The Transfer Connect & Success (TCS) Program is geared toward first-year transfer students, and is designed to help you have a fun and successful college experience. Throughout your first year at UC San Diego, you will be invited to join a series of events and presentations that will introduce you to resources and opportunities.  TCS also provides an opportunity to form lasting social connections both within Warren College and across the undergraduate colleges.

TCS meetings will be held on Thursdays throughout the 2016-17 Academic year.  Join us for a Bring Your Own Lunch (BYOL) Roundtable from 12:30-1:00 pm to meet other transfer students from across campus then stay for our Transfer Power Hour to learn about resources and tips for maximizing your transfer experience!

Join our TCS Mailing list to be included in email containing program information.
