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 Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum requirements (known as IGETC and accepted at both the University of California and the California State University) or the California State University General Education Breadth pattern (known as CSU GE) and obtaining a transfer-level associate degree (60 units) with a 2.5 or higher grade point average, students are guaranteed admission with junior standing to participating HBCUs.
Students may also opt to transfer with 30 or more University of California or California State University 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:
- Guaranteed Admissions to participating HBCUs and acceptance of completed transfer-level community college classes
- Simplified Transfer Process
- Priority consideration for housing
- Consideration for transfer scholarships for students with a 3.2 or higher grade point average
(based on funding availability)
