As a college student, you have the opportunity to complete the first two years of transferable coursework towards receiving a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university. These courses are lower division, general education and major preparation classes.
The Transfer Center is committed to providing resources, information, and services to students who are interested in transferring to an accredited baccalaureate four-year college or university. Students should begin planning for the transfer process during their first year at college.
The Center houses a variety of resources, including college catalogs, Internet access, and computer resources that help students who are transferring. These resources include CSU Mentor, UC Pathways, AICCU Mentor (for California's independent colleges), Eureka, and Choices.
Stop by the Transfer Center to obtain information on academic majors, admissions processes, articulation agreements, certificate and major sheets, financial aid and scholarship resources. Our skilled staff will also help you with your transfer application, essays or to maneuver through the admission process.
The Transfer Center also coordinates a variety of site visits to local colleges and universities. These trips help students learn more about the culture of their prospective colleges, academic majors, and also provide students with site tours. Students interested in transferring out of state may meet with staff to explore the admissions and transfer process. Visit with university representatives by making an appointment in the Transfer Center.
When the word "articulation" is used in education, it often has different meanings and connotations, depending on the setting. Articulation, for the purposes of student transfer between campuses, refers specifically to "course articulation", e.g., the process of developing a formal, written agreement that identifies courses (or sequences of courses) from Riverside Community College that are comparable to, or acceptable in lieu of, specific course requirements at a four- year university.
An articulation agreement is an agreement with a four-year university that specifies which Riverside Community College District classes may be transferred to meet general education, major requirements and electives. These agreements, maintained by the Articulation Officer, facilitate the successful transfer of students from RCCD to baccalaureate level colleges and universities.
