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