Now in pre-release! How to Transfer to a UC from a California Community College: The Unofficial Guide by Lindy King includes over one year of research from multiple sources, double verification, and a step by step process to ensure the best possible outcome to get students to a UC.
Most people don’t realize a legal mandate requires that every year, one-third of all admitted students to every University of California campus must be a transfer student. Of that one-third, anywhere from 92-97% are from a CA community college.
No matter how you performed in high school, you can quite legitimately transfer to Berkeley or UCLA. The UCs love new beginnings! And best of all, as a transfer applicant, you do not need the SAT or ACT — and high school transcripts are not required when you apply.
Statewide budget cuts mean there are simply not enough counselors or hours in the day for students and advisors to work optimally in tandem. And the very real and complicated mish-mash of rules can inadvertently lead to occasional bad outcomes. With this ebook in hand, you the student are a pro-active team member, preparing the right questions and bringing your best game to advisor meetings.
