Transfer Center

Welcome to the Transfer Center

 Transfer Center Mission

The Transfer Center is the focal point of transfer activities on campus. The Transfer Center serves as a resource center for students to become experts of their transfer goals and to successfully transfer.

 

UC and CSU Application Updates
  • UC Admission Dadlines: The deadline to transfer students to accept an admission offer to a UC campus is Jun 1st. Waitlist information for transfer can be found here
  • The deadlines to submit transcripts to transfer institutions varies by each school.  Check each school's admissions website for their deadline.  Students can order transcripts online at: https://studentweb.sdccd.edu/transcript/
  • Admitted students who accept a UC offer of admission and receive a grade of D or F in their last term of enrollment should immediately contact the admissions office at the campus they plan to attend to learn if the grade will impact the offer of admission. Each UC campus provides provisions/conditions of the admission offer; failure to meet these will make the offer subject to cancellation.
    It is helpful if the student informs UC of their final grades in all courses to show a balanced perspective of the academic accomplishments for the term. Generally, it is difficult for campuses to make a decision based on a “possible” grade. Until the student actually receives a grade below C, the campuses cannot offer much guidance.
