Transfer Mentorship Program

The UCLA Transfer Mentor 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! Our 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 aim to foster community in the transfer experience!

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

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!
