Transfer Edge is designed to introduce students to the academic rigor of the university, and the myriad academic and community support available on the Davis campus. In collaboration with campus partners and the STEP program, Transfer Edge will be an important opportunity for transfer students to earn course credit, establish relationships with faculty and staff, learn more about research and co-curricular opportunities, acclimate to the physical campus and its culture, and build community with transfer and other students.
