Educational Opportunity Program

Transfer Bridge

The EOP Transfer Bridge at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is intended to facilitate the transition of incoming EOP transfer students from Community College to a four-year university setting. CSUMB's Transfer Bridge will provide a unique experience for new incoming transfer students to better understand their participation in EOP, the University as a whole, and begin engaging in career and/or post-graduation goals. Transfer Bridge has helped incoming transfer students get a great head start on their college experience at CSUMB. In addition, Transfer Bridge participants also connect to EOP advisors, Peer Mentors, university resources, staff, faculty, as well as other peers who become a support network!
