Incoming Student Form Findings
In an effort to learn more about our transfer population's characteristics and preferences, Transfer Student Success sends out an annual intake form to new transfer students. We encourage faculty and staff to review and discuss this information with their colleagues so as to thoughtfully program plan.
Transfer Exit Survey Findings
Transfer Student Success also conducts annual exit survey for graduating transfer students to further understand engagement patterns, feelings of belonging, and post-graduation goals. We encourage faculty and staff to review and discuss this information with their colleagues so as to thoughtfully program plan.
End of First Quarter Survey Findings
In an effort to understand experiences in, through, and out of UC San Diego, Transfer Student Success conducts surveys for first-year transfer students who have completed their first quarter to further understand engagement goals as well as feelings of belonging.
