BEST (Building Essential Skills and Talents) Transfer Bridge

What is EOP Transfer Bridge Program?

EOP Transfer Bridge Program (TBP) is an intensive transitional program offered during the summer prior to the beginning of the fall semester to newly admitted EOP students transferring into San Diego State University from community colleges.

The purpose of the program is for students to effectively utilize academic advising/counseling during TBP. At the conclusion of the program students should be able to: identify graduation requirements for their major, effectively identify and use library support services, demonstrate financial literacy in areas of financial aid, and scholarship searches as well as demonstrate the value of peer relations to support their university transition.

Why Should I Attend

The transition from community college to a university can be overwhelming. Students who participate in EOP Transfer Bridge Program are able to get a step ahead of other transfer students. The program provides students with a better understanding of EOP, university requirements, and networking opportunities - so that students know exactly what is expected of them as they establish contacts early on in their university experience. Listed below are some of the benefits in participating in the program:
