17-19 Transfer Flowcharts:

Each major has prepared flowcharts specificially for transfer students.  Depending on a unique student's situation (transferred credit, pre-reqs met, sequencing, course offerings, etc.), it could take longer or shorter to graduate from Cal Poly.  Due to this some majors have created multiple flowcharts.  For a list of all transfer flowcharts please see: https://eadvise.calpoly.edu/transfer-students/transfer-flowcharts/ 

Major Specific Tips:

Each major has prepared a one page summary that includes quotes from former transfer students, information about senior project, things to study before staring Fall Quarter and more!  Check them out here: https://eadvise.calpoly.edu/transfer-students/transfer-student-major-specific-information/
