Transfer Students

The STEMCenter has dedicated individuals who can help serve as a point of contact when exploring majors in STEM or universities for transfer.

Our STEM counselor can assist you with developing a clear pathway to transfer. Our Success Coaches will provide you with useful tools and resources aimed at helping you reach your educational goals. There are also many transfer events both on and off campus that can support you in your transfer process. Please make sure to check out our Events Calendar!

Also make sure you visit the Transfer Center or see a counselor for any questions!


Assist.Org provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California; it is the official repository of articulation agreements for California’s public colleges and universities. Articulation shows how courses completed at one college or university can be used to satisfy requirements at another.

Students may be directed to Assist.Org by our Success Coaches and it will often be used by a counselor as a tool to help students create educational plans.

Honor Societies & Professional Organizations

Honor Societies and Professional Organizations are an important part of your educational journey. Many of these groups hold events and offer student discounts for students in 2-year and 4-year institutions. Feel free to ask any of our Success Coaches and STEM counselor about potential groups or organizations you should research for your particular major and schools of interest.
