Guided Pathways for eTransfers – Spring 2021 Edition

Week by week guide of what to expect in Spring 2021.  When the eTransfer Center opened it’s doors, engineering transfers asked for a week-by-week guide of what happens through their first year to help with managing their experience and in an attempt to not ‘miss-the-boat’.  While NOT exhaustive, the Guided Pathways for eTransfers offers a good look at what to expect.

Use it to plot a course for your spring quarter activities!  Click here to view or download the PDF version of the Guided Pathways

Celebrate eTransfers! 

Save the date! This year celebrate will be held on June 11th, from 5PM-7PM.

It has been a challenging year for engineering students as we had to transition from in-person instructions to virtual ones. However, don’t let that hinder the fact that we, as a community, had to work our best to thrive and adapt in the new environment. With that spirit, join us as we celebrate the end of the academic year by:

  • Congratulating our graduating eTransfers – Graduating seniors will also be invited to pay tribute to their family and the transfer champion in their life.
  • Acknowledging our Transfer Champions – vote for your faculty, staff, and student who made a difference for the transfer community
  • Thanking our donors and sponsors
  • Celebrating the accomplishments of our eTransfers (at UCLA Engineering & our partnering Community Colleges)
