Getting Started:  Transfer Orientation

For transfer students admitted into the EEB sponsored majors, here are your next steps, and what to expect:

1.  Beginning in late June and early July we will review your transfer course work and determine how it applies to your EEB major's requirements.
EEB Advising will contact you via email.  The email will include information on how your transfer coursework fulfills major requirements.  We will suggest courses for your Fall enrollment, and invite you to make an appointment to talk with your EEB undergraduate adviser.  

2.  Make an appointment to talk to with your EEB undergradute adviser.
Your email will include instructions on how to  schedule an advising appointment.  Appointments are available either by phone or in person.  You will be able to discuss and develop your academic plan, review your major requirements, learn about special opportunities available to you as an EEB major and ways you can get involved.  You will also have the opportunitiy to ask your adviser any additional questions you may have.

4.  Attend orientation.
Admissions hosts a transfer student orientation in summer that provides new transfer students an opportunity to meet other transfer students, and familiarize themselves with the campus and the available resources.  Orientation includes a faculty presentation on the EEB majors, including an overview of the field, courses offered, and includes details on how to get involved in undergraduate research.  

UCSC screens students for admission into the EEB majors.  Transfer applicants are held to completion of major preparation criteria for admission to UCSC.   If you were admitted to UCSC in a different major, you would also need to meet the transfer major preparation criteria to be eligible to enter an EEB sponsored major.
