Transfer & Commuter Student Life

Transfer and commuter students make up a large portion of the UC San Diego population. Both UCSD and Warren College offer a broad spectrum of services and programs to involve students in educational opportunities both in and outside the classroom. In addition, the Warren Dean of Student Affairs' staff is available to assist in a variety of ways to ensure a quality educational experience.

Active involvement is an important part of the college experience. Studies have shown that students who are involved in co-curricular activities actually do better in school than those who are not involved. The range of activities at Warren and UCSD are diverse and flexible enough to accommodate a busy schedule. Warren College and UCSD have a variety of opportunities for student involvement as a transfer student or commuter student.  Students are eligible to participate in any organization at UCSD and listed below are organizations designed specifically for transfer and commuter students.

Earl's Transfer and Commuter Commons

Ear's Transfer and Commuter Commons is a space located adjacent to the provost's office in the Warren Admin Building (EBU3B). This open space serves as a hub for Warren students to come relax, study, and be in community with one another. In addition to this, many student programs take place in this space. The commons includes a water fountain with a hydration station, a sink, wall cabinets for storage, two desktop computers, and multiple seating options as well.

Warren Transfer and Commuter Commission (WTCC)

WTCC is comprised of 10 members who are both elected and appointed, 5 transfer students and 5 commuter students are selected during Spring and Fall quarter, and serve a one-year term.
