Transfer Student Programs

Welcome to Cal State East Bay!

President Morishita's message to Students March 26 2020



As a transfer student, you are a valued part of our community as you join many other students like you who are committed to pursuing their educational goals. We recognize that transfers have different needs than first-year students, and we are here to make your adjustment and transition into our community as smooth as possible.

Transfer Student Programs serves as a resource hub for transfer students to access the support necessary to achieve their desired educational goals.

Here are some of the Transfer Student Programs at Cal State East Bay:

Smooth Transitions

Smooth Transitions provides the support needed to transition transfer students to the university with a great sense of connection, engagement and involvement with the East Bay community through academic-related and co-curricular activities. 

Transfer Academy

Transfer Academy is an opportunity for incoming transfer students at Cal State East Bay to learn more about the transition to the University in a supportive cohort environment prior to the first fall semester. Students commit to five days at the Hayward Campus to become familiar with available resources, and develop a deeper knowledge to assist them in their transition.

Transfer Connections

Transfer Connections pairs incoming transfer students from Cal State East Bay's top four feeder community colleges with Transfer Ambassadors who previously transferred from their same institution. 

Transfer Ambassadors

Having experienced the transfer experience firsthand, Transfer Ambassadors draw from their own experiences and available campus resources to create memorable experiences for incoming and first-year transfer students.

Tau Sigma National Honor Society

Tau Sigma is a national academic society for transfer students who achieve a 3.5 or higher GPA during their first term at Cal State East Bay. The Eta Epsilon chapter of Tau Sigma was established in 2016 to recognize oustanding students who transfer to the university each year.

Find Your Classrooms Before the First Day of Classes

Navigating campus on the first day of the semester can be daunting. But never fear - we are here to help! Register for a classroom tour led by a Transfer Ambassador to learn exactly where you need to be on the first day of class. You’ll be stress free and arrive on time to grab a good seat. Tours are tentatively scheduled for  Monday, August 10 through Thursday August 13, 2020. Choose a time that works for you from 10 am to 5 pm. Contact or 510-885-4361. Registration will open in the summer.
