About Us

Congratulations new and continuing transfer students! View our Transfer Success web presentation for tools and resources.

The Transfer Student Success team in Academic Affairs utilizes a student-centered approach to facilitate the success of newly admitted transfer students who completed their intent to enroll and continuing transfer students at San Diego State University.

We connect transfer students to campus resources and opportunities as early as possible to help ease their transition to campus and so transfer students can maximize their success at SDSU.

Our work began in fall 2015, working closely with the Transfer Student Outreach Allliance student organization. With direct and continuous feedback from SDSU transfer students, we implement opportunities to support and advance transfer student individual and collective success.

New and continuing SDSU transfer students from every major are welcome and encouraged to participate in the ongoing program of workshops, events, and/or mentorship sponsored or co-sponsored by the TSOA student organization.
