UCLA Transfer Student Center

Our program creates the opportunity for personal growth, peer connection, and academic success within a diverse and thriving transfer community. We believe that by investing in and training mentors, we can empower them to positively impact incoming transfer students! The UCLA Transfer Mentor Program is all about sharing knowledge, creating community, and empowering agency!

Share Knowledge
We are all about making sure transfer-specific knowledge, resources, and connections are passed on from class to class. It is our unique opportunity to invest in new transfer students and maximize their experience at this top university!

Create Community
Building purposeful connection with other transfer students is so important! Everyone learns best when they feel valued, known, and have friends going through similar experiences. We want to take "lonely" out of the transfer experience!

Empower Agency
We want to empower transfer students to exercise critical thinking and realize their own capacity to achieve a goal! Personal activism and confidence are important, especially for transfer students. We want transfers to reach their full potential!

Get Involved

Become a Mentor

The UCLA Transfer Mentor Program is no longer accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Mentor Cohort! If you would like to grow in leadership, invest in the transfer community, and receive professional development, consider joining this team for the 2022-2023 academic year.

We recognize that Transfer Mentors invest so much into the Transfer Community and new transfer students here at UCLA. We want to make sure they are being developed and invested in too, especially as they look towards graduation and life beyond UCLA. Strategic investment looks like consistent and intentional connection as a mentor cohort as well as biweekly meetings and workshops with guest speakers and professional resources whose mission is to set our transfer mentors up for success!

Become a Mentee

If you are a new UCLA Transfer Student who is ready to learn, committed to growth, and looking to build community for the next year, this is a perfect opportunity for you! Mentees are paired with Transfer Mentors who have already completed a year at UCLA. Mentors are trained to help you transition smoothly to UCLA!

Application for the 21-22 academic year is open now! If you'd like a transfer mentor- sign up today!
