Our Mission

We aim to support underserved, underrepresented, and first-generation transfer students transitioning into Cal Poly Pomona. We do this through providing programs and services where transfer students are supported through 1:1 coaching, academic support, and intentional programming focused on helping them transition into, through, and out of Cal Poly Pomona successfully.

Our Vision

Develop a transfer receptive culture where transfer students feel empowered to achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals.

Our Services

We serve transfer students through providing access to the following:

  • Dedicated professional staff, student assistants, and campus partners who can provide 1:1 and small group support as you navigate the university environment
  • Intentional and timely programming focused on increasing interactions between transfer students, staff, and faculty. These programs will increase your knowledge of key campus resources (e.g. myCPP, Canvas, etc.), academic policies and deadlines, as well as other relevant information
  • Information, referrals, and support services that will assist you with navigating the CPP system
  • A dedicated Transfer Study Lounge where you can connect, relax, and study with your peers
  • A transfer receptive culture where transfer specific initiatives and support of transfer students is abundant

Message from the Associate Provost

As a transfer student myself, I know firsthand many of the struggles that come with navigating community college and successfully transferring to a four-year university. I also recognize the tremendous assets you bring to our campus community. At CPP, the transfer student population is rapidly increasing. These days, transfer students make up almost half of all CPP students. Due to this increase, we launched the PolyTransfer Initiative in 2014.

Our goal is to help transfer students make a seamless and succesful transition to CPP, and provide opportunities for engagement while you're here. I hope you find all the necessary information on our website. Please feel free to contact our office if you should have any questions.

We are transfer students! We are CPP!
