2019 SF State Transfer Student Survey

The survey period has concluded. We sincerely thank those who participated in the survey, and we look forward to sharing results and analysis with the campus by early Spring '20! Those randomly selected to receive a participation perk will be contacted by Nov. 12 via SF State email.

SF State's Transfer Advisory Committee (TAC) invites current SF State students who began their undergraduate studies at another institution to contribute their unique voices and perspectives in an upcoming campus-wide survey of transfer students.


Survey takers will be invited to reflect on their overall experience as students who join the SF State community in the middle of their undergraduate experience. We want to understand our transfer students' impressions and opinions regarding their transition to SF State, and the impact of this transition on their ability to progress in their studies after transfer.

OK. Then what?

Our objective is to improve and better coordinate our efforts, as a campus, to support transfer students in making the most of their unique backgrounds and pathways, and achieving their academic, personal, and career goals. The TAC has identified a preliminary set of recommendations about areas we've identified as needing improvement. But, input from students who transferred to SF State is essential for setting effective priorities.

Sounds good. How do I take the survey?

On October 15th, the link to the survey will go live on this site. The survey period will end on November 3rd.

I'm not sure I will remember to do this!

Set a reminder in your calendar - the survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete and submit.

Plus, we will remind you - look out for emails from transferinfo@sfsu.edu

Lastly, to encourage participation even more, we're pleased to offer some excellent incentives!
