Ensure transfer and nontraditional students are provided with the guidance, support, and resources necessary to succeed at Cal.

Established in 1999, the Transfer Student Center is the first of its kind in the UC system, paving the way for greater transfer student support, advocacy, and recognition across all University of California campuses. The Transfer Student Center has helped thousands of transfer students over the years navigate a new campus culture, adjust to the demands of the research university, explore career development opportunities, and build community.

Students transferring from other schools and nontraditional students — those who are 25 and older and have returned to school — face unique challenges. You can help them thrive at the number-one public university in the world. You’ll be empowering them to achieve and lead. 

Your gift helps us:

  • Grow community building events and activities
  • Provide programming to our transition courses
  • Provide leadership opportunities for transfer students
