SCC's Transfer Success
Since becoming independently accredited in 2000, Santiago Canyon College has transferred students to
over 400 universities and colleges worldwide.
SCC's most popular transfer destinations are Cal State Fullerton, UC Irvine, and Chapman, but SCC students
have also transferred to schools such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Cornell, USC, BYU, CalTech,
Georgetown, Stanford, and many more.
SCC has excellent transfer admission success at highly competitive schools such as UCLA and UC Berkeley.
SCC students participate in the UC Transfer Admission Guarantee program (TAG), which offers guaranteed admission for qualifying students at seven of the nine UC campuses.
UCLA's Transfer Alliance Program (TAP) provides SCC Honors students greatly enhanced admission priority, plus eligibility for exclusive TAP program scholarships.
A special partnership with UC Irvine allows SCC Honors students to participate in UCI's Honors to Honors program, which grants entry into UCI's Campuswide Honors program and gives priority consideration for the UC Regents Scholarship. For the last 3 years, 100% of SCC's eligible Honors transfers were admitted to the program and received the scholarship.
