Transfer Workshops

Fall 2019

Application requirements for in-state, out-of-state, and private universities are unique to each student.  Please contact your university of interest if they are accepting applications for Spring 2020.

Here are a few suggestions to get assistance with the application process.

  • Make an appointment with a counselor regarding your Common Application or other applications.
  • Visit the Transfer Center to use the transfer resources to research universities.
  • Every Tuesday and Friday, in the Transfer Center, on a first come first served basis we have Quick Questions from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. with a Transfer Counselor.

UC and CSU Application Updates:

Every year the UC and CSU initial applications that were submitted on November 30 require completion of an update during the month of January.  The deadline to submit the UC and CSU initial application updates is January 31. 

In addition to the initial application update, some UC’s and CSU’s have their own supplemental applications through their website.  Their supplemental application update deadlines may vary.

Check your emails weekly for an email from your universities to fill out an additional supplemental application.
