Transfer to a Four-Year College

Make a Plan for Transfer Success

Students who plan 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 make an education plan with a counselor. This will ensure you meet the requirements for the specific institution you plan to attend.

Transfer eligibility is based on transferable college units and/or high school records and test scores. Each institution has its own admission requirements. To prepare for transfer:

  1. Decide where you want to transfer
  2. Talk to a counselor about that school's specific requirements
  3. Create an education plan
