Transfer Counseling

The Counseling Department offers a variety of transfer​ services to help you plan for transfer to a four-year college or university of your choice. You are strongly encouraged to speak with a counselor as early as possible to help you with transfer planning.

Counselors are able to:

  • Assist students in developing a smooth transition plan for transferring to a four-year college or university.
  • Provide assistance with general education requirements, course equivalencies, and transfer contacts.


ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST​ is the official repository of articulation for California’s public colleges and universities and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California.

Please note: ASSIST should not take the place of meeting with a counselor. It is intended to help students and counselors work together to establish an appropriate path toward transferring from a public California community college to a public California university.
