Advising Resources

Most students begin their academic career at UC Davis by attending Summer Transfer Orientation that is offered in late June. If you attend Orientation you will register for your fall courses. After this time the Transfer Center strongly encourages you to meet with your Dean’s College advisor and visit the Transfer Center prior to your quarterly Pass Time to ensure that you are staying on your academic plan, and have a balanced and reasonable schedule for each quarter you are enrolled. Victor Garcia is our main staff Transfer Advisor. He will be happy to discuss your schedule and make suggestions or referrals if you need more assistance. In addition to Victor we have a staff of four trained Peer Advisors who can also assist you with your scheduling needs, answer general questions about available resources, and help you navigate the UC Davis campus. No appointment is necessary; walk-ins are always welcome.

Ensuring that you’re registered for the right classes and succeeding academically is only one part of your UC Davis experience. In the Transfer and Reentry Center we understand that at some point you’ll want to explore campus opportunities or find yourself needing a bit of extra support. Whether you’re looking for career and internship options, research opportunities, or need some extra help with crafting a well written essay for your English course, the Transfer Center staff prides themselves on knowing who the affiliated staff on campus and resources available are to assist you with transitioning and making UC Davis your home away from home.

Transfer and Reentry Peers

We know from experience that transfer and reentry students want to talk to students just like them and who have gone through similar experiences. The Transfer and Reentry Center has a staff of Peer Advisors who are happy to speak with you, answer questions you might have, and refer you to campus resources. Whether you have specific questions you need answered or just feel like sitting down to talk to another transfer student, drop by the Transfer and Reentry Center and spend some time with one of our peers.
