University of California joins California State University system to provide streamlined transfer pathways for community college students
New pathways good for students, the economy, and California

Today the University of California (UC) took an important step toward simplifying the transfer pathway for California community college students. For too long, community college students looking to transfer to the UC to earn their bachelor degrees were confronted with a complex and difficult to navigate process which cost them both time and money and resulted in an insufficient number of students transferring. Today’s news of a single set of courses that will prepare transfer students for one of ten popular majors at any of the UC’s nine undergraduate campuses is historic.  Streamlining transfer is not only good for college students, it’s good for the state and its taxpayers.
