Transfer Success Center Workshops

Transfer Success Center workshops can help you through every step of the transfer process. Whether you are researching​ where you want to apply, trying to figure out your major, exploring transfer requirements, writing admissions essays, completing applications, submitting required documents, or anything in-between, there's a workshop for you!

Transfer Workshop Descriptions

​​​START HERE! Transferring to a university is a process that involves much more than just filling out an application. Researching and choosing the right school involves a lot of questions: What are the different types of schools out there, and what are the pros and cons of each? What questions should I consider when looking at a particular university? Can I get in? What will it cost and how can I find scholarships or other programs to help? Our Transfer 101 workshop addresses these questions and more, and is perfect for students who are just starting the transfer process...or don't know quite where to start! Also offered as a workshop for parents.

Do you have some quick questions about transferring?​​ Not really sure where to start? Do you know exactly where you want to go and want to know how to get there? For any transfer-related questions, Transfer Tuesday is your drop-in friendly way to get quick access to a Transfer Success Center staff member.

These are open sessions for students to drop-in and work on their applications. Multiple staff members will be readily available to answer any questions that arise while working on CSU, UC, private, or out-of-state applications.​​

​​We provide step-by-step demonstrations of how to complete both the California State University (CSU) & University of California (UC) applications. Special emphasis is placed on the parts that provide essential opportunities or cause the most confusion. Register for this workshop to learn how to fill out your applications quickly and accurately to ensure the best chance of admission and earning scholarships. 

Note: We also include information about the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT: AA-T or AS-T) which provides a limited CSU admission guarantee​. More information about these degrees can be found in the SCC Catalog​ and on their website.

​​​Essays are a required element of all UC and most private school applications. The essays are used not just for admissions but also for scholarship consideration as well in many cases. You'll find out all you need to know about what the universities are looking for and how to avoid common mistakes.​

​​The Common Application is now used by over 500 universities and colleges nationwide, including Chapman, USC, Pepperdine, Stanford, and many more. It provides a common core that is used by all member schools to which you apply, but there are additional details, criteria, supplements, essays, forms, and deadlines that are particular to each school. Our workshop walks you through each step of the Common Application and all its twists and turns.​

​University transfer admission requires more than just submitting an application - it's a process that you will undertake over the course of about a year. This session covers every stage between applying and starting cla​sses at the university, including mandatory application updates, supplemental applications, submitting transcripts and test scores, and transitional information on financial aid and housing..​

​​University representatives present critical information on how to complete the steps you'll need to follow between the time you apply to the university and the day you start classes there. Get info on sending transcripts, the Statement of Intent, deposit payments, new student orientation, housing, registering for classes, campus life, and more. ​

​SCC currently has guaranteed or priority admission agreements with 52 universities across the nation, including 6 UCs, all 23 CSUs, Arizona State University, 9 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, plus numerous private universities. This workshop will explain how to qualify for each of these programs to maximize your chances for getting into the schools of your choice.​

​Throughout the year, various university representatives offer information sessions with details on their schools. Topics include academic programs, admission standards, tuition, financial aid, housing, campus life, clubs, sports, and more. Schools such as USC, UCLA, CSUF, Chapman, and others frequently offer presentations at SCC, so check our schedule to see which schools will be presenting each semester. And if the school you like isn't listed, let us know and we'll do our best to either arrange a presentation or put you in direct contact with a representative.​

​This workshop is presented by university representatives for students who are planning to earn a JD and pursue a career as a lawyer. Learn how to prepare for law school, the LSAT exam, admission requirements, and what to expect in law school.​

​This workshop is presented by university representatives and is designed for students interested in a career as an MD or in related fields. It covers the academic standards, planning, MCAT info, and admission requirements to help you get from SCC to the medical school of your choice.​

​Now that you've considered your options and selected some likely transfer destinations (covered in Transfer 101), it's time to make it happen. The Transfer 102 workshop covers the nuts and bolts of transfer: admission requirements for a variety of schools, how and when to apply, and enhancing your chances for admission to the school of your dreams.​
