The Transfer Student Center offers specialized programs, workshops, and events to provide UCSB transfer students with academic, social, and emotional support. Events can be one-time workshops, special series, or quarter/year-long programs. Please pay close attention to events that require an RSVP.
Coffee & Community for First Generation College Students
The Transfer Student Center has partnered with the Educational Opportunity Program to offer a weekly space for first-generation transfers. Come by every Wednesday morning from 10:30am-11:30am for coffee, tea, snacks, and community! These are informal gatherings, so drop in at any time.
Dining with Faculty: A Faculty Mentoring Program
In collaboration with the Educational Opportunity Program, the Transfer Student Center offers transfer students the opportunity to dine with a professor in their department three times over the course of the academic quarter. This program was designed to help our transfer students start building their academic networks at UCSB and dive into scholarly conversations about their chosen discipline.
