Tips For Prospective Transfer Students

  • Create a network of counselors and faculty who can provide guidance and support as you make progress and excel at the community college and encourage you to apply to UC Berkeley or other four year educational institutions.
  • Prepare for your major. The more comprehensive and challenging your community college program, the better prepared your will be for University work and the better your chances for academic success.  Concentrate on classes required as preparation for upper-division work in your intended major.  Completing your major-preparation coursework while at community college can make you a more competitive applicant.
  • Don't give up your dream even if you have one bad semester or year. Strive to learn from circumstances that impacted your academic studies.  Remain motivated and determined to use your talents and strengths to the best of your ability.
