Preparing for the Q&A Session

 

To make the most of time spent in the Q&A Session, our expectation is that you will have completed as much of your application as possible before scheduling/logging in to Zoom.  We have provided thorough instructions in the CSU Application Canvas "Course" for your use to work on your application before attending the Q&A Session. 

 

Please be prepared when you login to Zoom!  This means you must have:

  • Created a CSU application using Cal State Apply.
  • Used the information in the Canvas course to complete and save your work within your application.  You’ll be better prepared to ask questions!  Do NOT submit your application until after you've attended the Q&A Session.    
  • Verified your eligibility for transfer to the CSU campus(es) you've selected.  If you need help with your eligibility, please schedule an appointment with your Counselor.  We will not be able to address eligibility or educational planning questions during the Q&A sessions.
  • Bring a list of questions you’d like to ask the Counselor.

Q&A Session Format

 

These sessions begin in a group format; however, multiple Transfer Center team members will be available to answer student's individual questions as well. There may be wait time to have your questions addressed individually.  We recommend you have something to work on while you wait.
