Transfer Mentorship Program


Transfers F1RST- Transfer Mentorship Program

The Transfer Mentorship Program is a quarter-long commitment to your success (offered in fall and winter quarters for transfer students who are CHASS majors).

  • You are paired with a tenured CHASS transfer mentor who knows what it is like to transition to UCR.
  • You will meet with your transfer mentor throughout the quarter and work with your mentor to complete a bucket list:
    • Attend a professor’s office hours
    • Visit your academic advisor
    • Attend a Transfers F1RST workshop
    • Engage in an additional campus event or workshop
    • Meet with your transfer mentor virtually bi-weekly (via Zoom, Google Meets, FaceTime, or what works for you)
    • Complete a survey for reflection and feedback

Once all Bucketlist items are completed at the end of the quarter, participants will receive a "Certificate of Completion" for the program.
