About Transfer Bridge

Transfer Bridge is a free of charge summer orientation program for newly admitted Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) transfer students. This program is designed to support newly admitted transfer students in transitioning from their community college to the university environment and academic life through workshops designed to prepare them for academic and personal success at Cal Poly.   

Program Goals:  

The purpose of EOP Transfer Bridge is to:  

  • Increase student familiarity to campus resources equipping them for college success.  
  • Strengthen the campus climate and create a positive experience for students through engagement with faculty, peers, and staff.  
  • Provide comprehensive advising that focuses on curriculum and graduation requirements.  


  • Housing will be provided to those students who wish to stay overnight on campus.
  • All meals for the program will be covered. 
  • On campus parking will be provided.

Students who are participating in Transfer Bridge may receive communication to sign up for the August 8th or August 9th Transfer SLO Days sessions. However, in order to fulfill the SLO Days requirement, EOP transfer students must sign up for the Transfer Bridge orientation session taking place Sunday, August 11- Monday, August 12.

Participants who live outside of San Luis Obispo County have the option to check into their room on campus Saturday August 10th. Transfer Bridge will begin promptly Sunday morning at 8 a.m.

To sign up for Transfer Bridge, select the Orientation tab in your Cal Poly portal. This orientation is free of cost for all EOP transfer students, regardless if you stay overnight on campus or not. 

If you choose to stay, select the OVERNIGHT option on your Cal Poly portal. There will be zero cancellations if you select this option. If you do not plan to stay overnight, select the COMMUTER option.
