How to Transfer to Private/Independent Colleges

www.aiccu.edu

Transferring to private or out-of-state colleges is different than applying to a CSU or UC.  The minimum requirements for transfer vary from college to college, and from major to major.   Each institution has its own unique transfer requirements for admission.   Please consult with the catalog or website for the specific school you would like to attend for the most current and accurate information.  Students should consult with a GWC counselor or the Transfer Center for the articulation agreements and transfer requirements to determine eligibility.

  1. Complete a minimum amount of transferable units (usually 30).
  2. Complete the appropriate English and Math requirements.
  3. Complete courses for the major.
  4. Earn and maintain a competitive GPA.
  5. If applicable, complete General Education courses.  Certain California Private Colleges or Universities do accept the CSU GE Breath or IGETC (please see table below**).
  6. Apply on time.  Please check with each individual college or university for the application filing period.
