UCI students

Enjoy a smooth, summertime transition to UCI.

Make an early and successful switch to UCI.

Our Transfer Edge program will make an Anteater out of you!

As an incoming transfer student, you are invited to participate in Transfer Edge. This program is tailored to your unique needs and builds upon your prior academic and life experiences while preparing you for a smooth transition to UCI and the quarter system. As part of a small community of transfer students, you will have an opportunity to become familiar with the academic rigor and social scene of UCI with maximum opportunity and support. The program’s mentors (former program participants) will also create a meaningful program environment for you.

By the beginning of fall quarter, you will have earned UCI units, which will count towards your undergraduate degree, become acquainted with the campus, networked with faculty and administrators, learned about undergraduate research opportunities, and become part of a close-knit group of incoming students.

Discover the additional benefits of Transfer Edge.

The program’s special workshops and sessions will help you learn about various aspects of campus life, including:

  • Using the UCI library for research
  • Engaging with faculty about their research
  • Planning your career
  • Studying abroad
  • Getting involved in campus activities
  • Polishing your skills in leadership development, public speaking, and writing

Transfer Edge students can enroll in the program during Session I, Session II, or for the Full Summer. Learn more about Transfer Edge, including enrollment dates, academics, and fees. Financial Aid is also available to assist UCI students in meeting the costs of attending this program.
