Transfer Services provide important services to assist students in planning for transfer to a four-year college or university. Information and workshops are offered on transfer requirements, transfer planning, writing the application essay, choosing a college, and completing transfer admission applications.

Transfer Services also schedules representatives from other universities and colleges, including UC, CSU and private universities, to meet with students on a regular basis. CSM has Transfer Admission Agreements with a number of four-year institutions which can guarantee transfer admission. 

For more information about transfer planning refer to the CSM Catalog and the CSM Transfer Services Booklet.

Associate Degrees for Transfer

As a result of Senate Bill 1440, California community colleges now offer special associate degrees to support efficient transfer to campuses within the California State University system.

In June 2012 the UC Academic Assembly approved amendments to SR 467.C that add completion of an Associate Degree for Transfer (in a relevant major) from a California Community College as an additional pathway to UC transfer admissions.

The degrees are described in the following document and are included in the CSM Catalog.
