Here's What We Do

The Transfer Center helps students research their options and make plans for a smooth transition to a four-year university or other institution.

While we're operating under restrictions related to COVID-19 for the 2022 winter quarteryou can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by using the following options.

Appointments (Via Zoom)

You can use our online scheduling tool to make an appointment for a counseling session on Zoom.

If there are no appointments available, please check back, as new appointment times will become available every day.


Drop-in Sessions (via Zoom) 

Drop-in sessions are only 10-15 minutes and are meant for quick questions regarding academic, career, and transfer counseling and advising. These sessions are not meant for completing a comprehensive educational plan, personal counseling or financial aid extension.  

Drop-in sessions are hosted by counselors and academic advisers. Counselors can assist with all topics. Academic advisers can assist with all topics except:

  • Academic Renewal Questions
  • TAA/TAG Information
