Transfer

Hit the deadlines to make sure you don’t get left behind.
Transfer

While transferring can seem overwhelming, here are some resources to help get you started and relieve the stress. 

Many students know that the transfer applications for the Fall 2024 semester are coming up this Oct. 1 and are open through Nov. 30.

To get started, “Make a counseling appointment with the Transfer Center or with general counseling for one hour, and meet with a counselor to double check your eligibility if you’re eligible to apply this fall,”  Christina Heredia, a transfer counselor at Grossmont College, said. 

Students need to have at least 60 transferable units and a minimum 2.0 GPA. 

Tiana White, a freshman at Grossmont, said she didn’t know transfer applications were coming up. “I would wait to get all my general education out of the way before transferring,” White said. 

If you are a student eligible and ready for transfer, there are workshops to help with the application process. To make these workshops work in your favor, make sure to have most of your application filled out, this way the counselors can assist you with information you need to fix or add. 

These workshops, which run from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30, are offered over Zoom and in person in the computer lab in building 10. 

“The hope is that the students have already created their account, they’ve already started the application, and we’re answering questions for them,” Heredia said. “But if you’re brand-new, and you’re confused, we’re of course going to help you with those questions.” 

Make sure you call the Transfer Center or visit in person to reserve your spot for these workshops as it is required. Students can attend as many workshops as they would like.

“I’ve seen students that come three, four times, some just come once, it just depends,” Heredia said. 

Other resources for transfer can be accessed through the transfer center page on the Grossmont College website: grossmont.edu/student-support/transfer-center/. The application assistance section gives students step-by-step instructions on how to fill out both the University of California and the California State University system transfer applications. 

While you don’t necessarily have to know what major you want to do, it can be beneficial to have an idea of your career to prepare for transfer. 

“I think it’s very helpful to know to have an idea, but it can definitely change, and that’s okay,” Heredia said.
