Transfer Edge is a six-week, customizable experience designed to immerse incoming transfer students in all that UC Santa Barbara has to offer, from breathtaking vistas to the exchange of brilliant ideas. 

Edge students collaborate with advisors, mentors, and program staff to envision an academic roadmap that reflects individual educational goals, and enroll in credit-bearing courses that will count toward degree progress. Students engage in transfer-focused courses to learn about campus resources, facilities, and services designed to support success and well-being. A plethora of supplemental workshops allow students to focus on what matters most to them, whether that’s landing an on-campus job, gaining hands-on research experience, or mastering productive study habits with peers. 

Beyond academics, Transfer Edge brings students together in a supportive community that fosters lasting relationships. A variety of social activities will be offered each week, allowing students to build a supportive community with a diverse cohort of peers while constructing a unique experience that suits their needs and priorities. 

At this time, we anticipate virtual delivery of all Transfer Edge courses, activities, and events.
