In addition to providing an academic head start, Transfer Edge will help you build a community for support throughout your time at UC Santa Barbara. Upon acceptance to the program, you will get to know Transfer Edge Peer Mentors who will lead informational webinars, coordinate scheduling labs, and connect you to important campus resources before the program begins. 

Once the program starts, opportunities to meet and mingle include:

  • Welcome Event — Begin your UC Santa Barbara journey with introductions to new friends and Peer Mentors.

  • Study Sessions — Learning is more fun when you do it in groups. Join your peers in virtual sessions to master concepts from your courses and build habits that will lead to academic success.

  • Community Lunches — Relax with your lunch, learn more about an engaging topic, and catch up with your friends in this virtual series featuring presentations from campus leaders.

  • Fireside Chats  Attend a weekly series of insightful and candid discussions featuring special guests that will help you better navigate and balance your academic journey. 

  • Socials — Connect with your peers and unwind from a busy week with game nights, watch parties, and more!


In collaboration with the Transfer Student Center, Transfer Edge will bring you opportunities to learn what UC Santa Barbara has to offer, including workshops focused on professional development and academic success.
