Transfer Student Center Transfer students make up such a large portion of our campus student body, and many resources and the heart of the transfer community can be found at the Transfer Student Center, located centrally on Lower Sproul, in Cesar Chavez. They provide resources like advising, mentorship programs, virtual community spaces, on-campus jobs, and so much more. Check their website, located here.
Starting Point Mentorship Program The Starting Point Mentorship Program (SPMP) pairs eligible community college students with current UC Berkeley student mentors that offer guidance, motivation and access to admissions, campus, and community resources. The program is specifically designed to encourage California Community College students from all backgrounds to explore their academic potential and prepare for transfer to UC Berkeley and other 4-year universities. Once you get acquainted with Cal, you would be able to mentor others at local community colleges all around California!
Transfer-Specific Advising Starting at Cal as a transfer can be academically intimidating, but the Transfer Center houses 4 transfer-specific academic advisors that you can meet with to ensure a smooth transition. Additionally, there are several transition courses that help you to adjust to campus culture and university academic strategies and tips for success.
Virtual Community Space Even in our virtual setting, the Transfer Student Center still provides many peer resources for students to transition to online learning, build community, and ask questions. The Virtual Community Space is open 4-6 hours per day Monday through Friday, and more information can be found here.
