Make a plan for transfer success
Students who plan to transfer to the California State University (CSU) system, the University of California (UC) system, or to a private or out-of-state college or university should meet with a counselor to develop a plan. This will ensure you meet the requirements for the specific institution you plan to attend.
Transfer eligibility is based on transferable college units and/or high school records and test scores. Each institution has its own requirements for admission and junior standing. To prepare for transfer:
- Decide where you want to transfer
- Talk to a counselor about that school's specific requirements
- Create an educational plan
Learn which American River College courses fulfill CSU lower division general education requirements.
Completion of all the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) meet lower division general education requirements at either a California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) without the need after transfer to take additional lower division general education courses.
