SBCC Ranks 6th in State for Community College Transfers to UCs
Santa Barbara City College ranks 6th among the 113 community colleges in the state for students who transferred to a University of California campus in fall semester 2014, according to transfer data recently released by the UC Information System. A total of 569 SBCC students transferred to UC campuses with UCSB the top choice with 285 enrollees.
“SBCC’s transfer program with the UC system, especially with UCSB, is a long-standing and robust one,” said SBCC President Lori Gaskin. She applauds the recent University of California System announcement to extend the deadline for students to file transfer applications to UC campuses for fall 2016 to January 4. “We wholeheartedly support UC’s commitment to admit more community college transfer students,” said President Gaskin. “Transfer to a four-year college or university or completion of a two-year degree/certificate completion are our top priorities for our students.”
Among its programs, SBCC’s Transfer Center offers the Transfer Academy which helps students meet the requirements to be guaranteed admission to four-year colleges or universities. The college has articulation agreements with over 70 four-year institutions, including all 10 UC campuses. The center also administers the Transfer Achievement Program, which supports underrepresented and first-generation-to-college students in preparing to transfer to a four-year college or university.
