Our Origin Story

In 2019, voices of students, faculty and staff came together to advocate for transfer student support at UC San Diego. In October 2019, it was announced that the department Transfer Student Success would be developed to support transfer students to assure a smooth transition to UC San Diego and facilitate their achievement of their academic, professional and personal goals. A listening campaign was conducted in November 2019 which focused on transfer students' desires of services and support; these voices continue to help us prioritize activities specific to the UC San Diego transfer student population. We opened our doors to the inagural Triton Transfer Hub in the Biomedical Library building in Winter 2020!
