Transfer Center Reports
Transfer Academic Success Program (TASP) -This program supports incoming transfers on academic probation in their first year at Cal Poly. Afer the 2022 pilot, TASP was institutionalized and the Transfer Center annual report contains updates about TASP each year. We continue to make a TASP One-Sheet each year to help highlight the key information and to share with campus stakeholders.

Transfer Center Mission
The Cal Poly Transfer Center is committed to serving the particular needs of our diverse transfer student population while advancing institutional support for transfer students. We offer support and tools to assist students in achieving their desired personal, community, academic, and professional goals as they progress through their educational journey. The Transfer Center is a resource for students as they navigate the academic and cultural landscapes of graduating from Cal Poly. Through connections to campus and SLO communities, peer support networks and campus resources, we support the holistic well-being and success of transfer students.
Physical Transfer Center Space
The Transfer Center is dedicated to offering a physical space that provides a specific area for studying, relaxing, meeting with other students that have shared experiences, and connecting with campus resources and partners in a familiar space. We also provide a space to be heard, seek solutions and guidance from current transfer students and professional Transfer Center staff. We aspire to create a welcoming community space that acknowledges the intersectionality and individuality of each transfer student who belongs on our campus.
