California Community College students may now take advantage of a new initiative that facilitates the transfer to a number of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
By completing the general education requirements for the University of California system know as the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the California State University General Education Breadth pattern and obtaining an Associate degree (60 units) with a 2.5 or higher Grade Point Average, students are guaranteed admissions with junior status to participating Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Students may also transfer with 30 or more California State or University of California transferable units and a 2.5 or higher grade point average. Units will be accepted for general education, pre major or elective units.
Advantages of this program include:
- Guarantee Admissions and acceptance of classes
- Priority consideration for housing
- Consideration for transfer scholarships for students with a 3.2 or higher grade point average
(based on funding availability)
