Transfer to a 4-Year College
Make a Plan For Your Transfer Success
Students planning to transfer to the California State University (CSU) system, the University of California (UC) system, or to a private or out of state college or university should meet with a counselor to develop a plan to meet the admission and graduation requirements for the specific institution you plan to attend.
Transfer admission eligibility is based on transferable college units and/or high school records and test scores. Each institution has its own requirements for admission and junior standing. To prepare for transfer, students must decide which school they will attend, consult a counselor for the specific requirements for that particular institution, and to create a written educational plan.
The college has a variety of support services available to assist students with career decision-making, problem resolution, and goal achievement.
