Here's What We Do

The Transfer Center helps students research their options and make plans for a smooth transition to a four-year university or other institution.

While you won't be able to visit us in person during the 2021 spring quarter, you can still speak with a counselor or academic adviser by phone, email or online video.


Use our online appointment system to schedule a time to talk.

  • If there are no appointments available, please check back, as new appointment times will become available every day 
  • After making your appointment, be sure to check your email for important information about your appointment

Virtual Drop-in Sessions

You can have a quick online chat with a counselor or academic adviser without an appointment. These sessions are only 10-15 minutes and are meant for quick questions regarding academic, career, transfer and personal counseling and advising. 

Click the burgundy button below to log in through the eSARS system during the drop-in hours listed below. When the eSARS screen opens:

  • Log in with your student ID (also known as Campuswide ID, or CWID) and date of birth (MMDDYYYY)
  • Click the "Drop-In" button and select a reason for your appointment; then click "Continue."
  • During drop-in hours, counselors and advisers will see students in the order they enter the Zoom session. You may  have to wait for your turn if a counselor/adviser is speaking with another student.

Note: If the Drop-In option is greyed out, there is no availability during that time. Please check back later during the posted drop-in hours.  You may also visit General Counseling for drop-in hours.
