Transfer Transition Meeting (TTM)

As a first semester Fall 2022 School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts (SSHA) transfer student, you will be able to meet with your SSHA Academic Advisor for your Transfer Transition Meeting (TTM) beginning September 19th, 2022. The mandatory Transfer Transition Meeting must be completed during your first semester at UC Merced. We hope that meeting with your 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.
