The Cal Poly Transfer Center opened in January 2020 thanks to advocacy from students, the Association of Transfer Students, and advisors for the 6 colleges. Funding for the Transfer Center was provided by the CSU Graduation Initiative 2025. 

Transfer Center Vision

Empowering and supporting transfer students to succeed and thrive at Cal Poly while advancing institutional support for transfer students. 

Transfer Center Goals:

  • Resources: Provide and connect students to on- and off-campus resources. 
  • Community: Foster a sense of belonging and community for transfer students. 
  • Advocacy: From application to graduation, advocate for more transfer inclusive policies, practices, events, and language. Increase campus-wide awareness for how to support and include transfer students within the Cal Poly community.

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 transitioning to and 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.
