UC Counselor Conferences and the Ensuring Transfer Success Institutes

After much consideration, the University of California will no longer include the California community college track at our September Counselor Conferences. We are shifting our focus to the annual Ensuring Transfer Success (ETS) institutes, in partnership with the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, and will offer additional webinars to better support California community college counselors/advisers throughout the year.


Our decision is based, in large part, on feedback from community college counselors who advocated for more relevant content to be delivered in a convenient, accessible and timely manner. We believe our changes will accomplish this. We will concentrate on the distinct needs of each counseling population, and our new webinar series specifically for CCC counselor/advisers will provide a cost-effective and accessible format to more counselors throughout the state.

Moving Forward

The UC Office of the President will offer webinars on general and specialized topics throughout the year, beginning in fall 2018. For your convenience, webinars will be recorded and posted for year-round access. Therefore, you can choose to participate in a live webinar or view a recorded webinar at a later time.

In the meantime, we still encourage you to attend ETS. In the past couple of years, we added additional locations for ETS – increasing from just three to five – to better serve all regions of the state and more counselors/advisers.

Registration for ETS is open now. We hope you can attend this year’s event.
