More community college students in California transfer to UCLA than any other University of California campus, and 93 percent of UCLA transfers graduate. Through mentoring and networking opportunities, we are committed to promoting the success of current Transfer students and upholding this standard of excellence. We also want to ensure that Transfer students will continue to thrive when they become alumni, and building a comprehensive network of social and professional support for Transfer alumni is central to our mission. We are committed to advocating for the needs of Transfer students and alumni, building a cohesive and impactful alumni network, and supporting the next generation of Transfer students through scholarships.


Our mission is to cultivate connections between a diverse population of transfer students and alumni through philanthropy, professional development and social networking. We strive to carry out this mission in the most transparent and inclusive way in order to best support our growing community.


Our vision is to be a foundation of support for transfer students and alumni around the world.
