Transfer Student Success Center

Welcome Transfer Students!

Transferring to a university provides new opportunities and challenges. We recognize that you are not new to the college experience, yet you may have many questions, need support, or want to find allies and supporters. The Transfer Student Success Center provides services to assist students with navigating the academic and cultural landscape of CSUMB. In collaboration with campus partners, the TSSC connects students with success services to aid them in their academic, professional, and personal endeavors.

As a Hispanic Serving and Minority Serving Institution, CSUMB works to increase the persistence of students of color through intentional and focused support. The Transfer Student Success Center is guided by values of equity and inclusion, working to engage students in culturally responsive services and support.

CSUMB Land Acknowledgment

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) resides on the indigenous homeland of the Esselen people (also known as Carmeleno, Monterey Band, and Rumsen). It is on the rich homeland of the Esselen, where CSUMB not only thrives as an institution of higher education but also provides an education abundant with service and experience to a diverse community of learners. As our students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members explore the university’s campus, remember to respect the land and take note of the natural beauty. Remember that ancestors rest below pathways and in other less traveled areas on campus. We Are Here - Let Ka Lai
