Transfer Students

Now that you’ve been admitted to Cal State East Bay (congratulations and welcome!), we want to help you find your place on campus. With Welcome Day, summer orientations, classes and a residence hall just for transfers, we make it easy to fit in.

Important Things to Know

Check Your To-Do List

Log into your MyCSUEB to-do list, which includes things like confirming your enrollment by May 1 and submitting your final transcript by July 15, and complete everything on the list. Log in using your NetID (included in your acceptance letter in your welcome packet). Also, set up and check your Horizon email account for important updates.

Apply for Financial Aid

Be sure to submit your financial aid application by March 2. The earlier you file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Dream Act Application, the more options for aid you will have. If you miss the March 2 priority deadline, you can still apply. We will start sending out financial aid award letters in March. Contact the Financial Aid office at or (510) 885-2784 (Mon-Thurs, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Fridays, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.).

Choose Classes

At orientation, students will meet with their major advisors and receive information about graduation requirements. Refer to your major department website and/or the CSUEB catalog for a list of required courses, as well as the Guide for New Transfer Students for information about general education.

Attend Welcome Day

Save the date for Welcome Day, an event for admitted freshmen and transfer students, April 21, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Learn all about Cal State East Bay, including the four academic colleges, student services, and student life and leadership. Register today!

Plan for Orientation

This summer, meet the students, faculty and staff that set Cal State East Bay apart at one of our transfer orientations, June 20, June 22, July 11, or July 13. Check to make sure the orientation is for your declared major. Registration opens in late March.

Send Your Final Transcripts

Submit your final college transcripts with spring semester grades and graduation confirmation by July 15.
