Financial Planning and Basic Needs

Make sure you know how to understand your student account, as well as how to find CPP basic needs resources. 

Graduate School Planning

The Graduate School planning process is most effective when you begin at least one year prior to your intended admittance into a graduate program of your choice. We recommend at least a year’s worth of preparation so you have plenty of time to explore and ask questions.

Undergraduate Research Planning

If you are considering graduate school or you are going into a professional field where research is a core component, you will want to consider applying for undergraduate research opportunities. 

Study Abroad Planning

If you would like the opportunity to explore the world while making progress towards your degree, look into the Study Abroad programs we offer at Cal Poly Pomona. Many of our transfer students enter the university believing that they may not have enough time to participate in this program given they only have two years. You have time!
