TSOA Student organization

 The Transfer Student Outreach Alliance

The Transfer Student Outreach Alliance (TSOA) is the official transfer student organization at San Diego State University. Students from all disciplines are welcome to join this university-wide community building student-led organization. 


TSOA strives to connect transfer students to campus resources, educational and professional opportunities through early intervention, an intention to promote campus and community engagement promptly, which enables students to maximize their potential for successful outcomes at SDSU and beyond.


The TSOA formed in 2016 as a response to the Transfer Student Achievement Initiative and offers peer-based support through a transfer student-specific platform comprised of social activities, community service, and student leadership. Additional guidance and mentorship come from the organization’s core team, led by its faculty advisor.


The TSOA is an affiliate of the Division of Faculty Advancement and Student Success. Every SDSU college, New Student & Parent Programs, Career Services, One SDSU, and other campus programs unites to accomplish Transfer Student Achievement Initiative goals which ultimately enhance the academic experience of our transfer students.
