Transfer Student Success Workshops

The Transfer Success Workshops provide an engaging learning experience that empowers transfer students with valuable knowledge and tools to influence personal, academic, and professional growth in and out of life at Cal. Students will be introduced to various academic strategies and campus resources and opportunities for enhanced student development and holistic well-being. The workshops will also provide students with the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session after each segment to ask questions, express concerns, and build connections within the transfer community.
