Transfer Transition Meeting (TTM)

Beginning September 18th, incoming School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts (SSHA) transfer students of Fall 2017 will be required to meet with an academic advisor during their first semester at UC Merced. We hope that meeting with an academic advisor early on will assist you in transitioning to UC Merced by facilitating progress in your degree and support in the development of your educational Goals.

Seeing an Advisor for Transfer Transition Meeting

Advisors will will be available for this important meeting during regular SSHA Advising Walk-in hours or by making an appointment with an advisor. Check in at COB 204 with the following materials:

  1. A printed copy of the email sent to you from your advisor regarding your SSHA Foundations/Transfer Credit Review
  2. A printed, completed Graduation Planner; utilizing the 2-Year Major Plans below
    •  Print and complete a Graduation Planner which will include your current coursework (Fall 2017) plus all courses left to be completed in your degree program (refer to your Audit and email from your advisor regarding your SSHA Foundations for your remaining requirements).
      • You will download the Graduation Planner and are expected to print it out and complete it before seeing an advisor
    • Undeclared SSHA Students should complete a Graduation Planner and run a ‘what if’ Audit for their intended major within SSHA.

NOTE: Students wishing to complete this meeting without the above materials will not be seen, and will be asked to come back at a later time with the required documents.
