This report identifies transfer students‘ various needs before coming to UCLA and during Fall Quarter so that programming and services geared toward transfer students might be improved. Findings based on focus groups with transfer students were divided into five key areas: 1) initial impressions of UCLA, 2) housing experiences, 3) needs and resources, 4) campus experiences, and 5) student recommendations for improving the transfer experience.
