STOMP is a volunteer based, transfer student organization, that will help you achieve your university goals.
Many of our volunteers are transfer students, so they can relate with your experience and offer valuable insights. Volunteers play leading roles in our virtual and in-person opportunities, including the annual UCLA STOMP conference.
The highlight of our program is the annual conference which is a free event that hosts over 1,000 prospective transfer students on campus. The conference includes a holistic set of workshops addressing UC Admission and Financial Aid resources, campus and community support programs, cultural and identity-based resources, and most importantly, the opportunity to directly interact with other transfer students.
In response to COVID-19 and to protect the health and safety of our guests and UCLA community members, the 2020 conference was held online.
- Next conference: Spring 2021 (Location TBD)
We are always looking for ways to engage with prospective community college students, especially those who may have never considered UCLA as a transfer option. We would appreciate the opportunity to host virtual and/or in-person events at your community college, especially within your respective student support programs, such as Puente, Umoja, EOPS, First Year Learning Communities and all others.
For more information and scheduling, please contact the STOMP Supervisors Erika Perez and Lila Mendoza (see contact info below).
Applications for Student Coordinator positions are currently closed and will reopen in fall 2021.
