Transfer is the process of continuing your education at a baccalaureate-degree granting college or university, usually after completing your major preparation and general education at a community college.

We offer guaranteed admission programs with many four-year institutions including the UC and CSU systems. We transfer more students than any other District from our colleges to UC San Diego and San Diego State University.

Our College Transfer Centers serve as resource centers for information about attending the four-year university of your choice. A variety of resources are available:

  • Transfer Counseling
  • Guidance in researching and selecting a transfer institution
  • Individual appointments with representatives from UC, CSU and independent colleges and universities
  • Transfer workshops
  • Transfer Admission Agreements and Guarantees with selected universities
  • A library of catalogs and publications
  • Information on important dates and deadlines
  • Computer software for college research
  • Transfer Fairs

For additional information regarding specific services, contact the Transfer Center on campus.

Students are advised to plan their transfer as early as possible and enroll in transferable courses in both general education and in courses that prepare for the specific university major. Students interested in transfer should meet with a counselor to develop a Transfer Educational Plan, which will identify the courses needed to transfer.
