We're so glad you're here. Engineering Student Services is passionate about supporting our transfer students.
To help ease that transition, we’ve put together some information specific to our college – check it out below. Additionally, we encourage you to explore the general academic advising information for all Cal Poly transfer students and to connect with the Transfer Center for campus wide transfer resources, events, and support.
If you are a future Cal Poly transfer student, please visit Cal Poly Admissions for application criteria and deadlines.
Explore these helpful transfer specific resources for recently accepted transfer students and these tips and resources for different transfer transitions you may face. Also, you can read advice for transfer students from Cal Poly staff, students, and faculty to help you prepare for coming to Cal Poly.

You have been enrolled in the "College of Engineering Transfer SLO Days" Canvas course. This course was created by advisors to give you all the information you need to prepare for registering for your first quarter! Please take time and complete it in its entirety.
Included in this course is a step by step checklist that we recommend you complete prior to registration on August 28th at 10am.
Finally, if you have any questions about the registration system and tools such as Schedule Builder, the Office of the Registrar has created FAQ's specifically for new transfer students.
Here are some important things to do during your first fall quarter at Cal Poly.
From now on, you'll register as a continuing student. The overall process remains the same, but the details will be different from when you registered for fall quarter.
Each quarter you will be assigned a date/time for registration, which is listed on the right side of the Student Center. This date and time is based on your actual academic progress level (how many degree applicable units you have completed), which is found on your academic progress gauge in PolyProfile. It will be updated after week 4 each quarter.
If you have questions about what to plan or how to use these tools, please make an appointment to see us.
Transfer Mentorship program
Our college has partnered with Mentor Collective to connect new transfer students with continuing students serving as mentors. We highly encourage all transfer students to register!
For questions or a link to sign up, please contact Ashlee Burt, one of our advisors.
