The Transfer Center, located in the counseling center in Rodda North, assists students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. The center provides college catalogs, computerized college searches, video college tours, internet lines, information on major course requirements, four-year college applications, college site visits, free telephone calls to any university in the United States, transfer fairs, counseling with college representatives, and workshops on the transfer process, choosing a major, and financial aid.

The Transfer Center is the source for transfer information; however, there are numerous transfer resources that work with the Transfer Center to assist you:

SCC Counselors-Assist you in choosing your major, write transfer agreements, and provide information on admission, general education and major prerequisites. Ask your counselor for a written educational plan that includes classes for your A.A. Degree and transfer, and update it annually.

University Representatives-UC Davis and CSU Sacramento representatives visit this campus weekly. They offer Information and Application Workshops and are available to speak to classes, student organizations, and campus committees. They can answer unique questions regarding transfer during scheduled or drop-in appointments. Other four-year colleges send representatives to meet with students throughout the year. Check with the Transfer Center to schedule appointments and to learn about upcoming four-year representative visits.

Strategies for Successful Transfer: Human Career Development 300-This class prepares students for transfer to any four-year college/university through personal assessment and college search (2 units, transferable to CSU).

Transfer Day and Night-Over 75 four-year college and university representatives meet with students on the quad for informal recruitment and information exchange about their respective institutions. Don't miss this once-a-year opportunity in October to meet with four-year representatives regarding specific majors and possible transfer institutions. Look for Transfer Night which is a smaller group of university representatives in March of each year.
