COVID-19 Transfer Admissions Updates

The table below outlines current exceptions to normal admissions practices announced by the University of California and California State University systems. These announcements impact students in their final semester, and students who have not applied to transfer, differently.

Students- make sure to make an appointment with a counselor (by clicking here) before converting any class to "Pass/No Pass."

Please note: a student cannot retake a class once passed- if a student opts for a "Pass/Credit" and passes that class, transfer institutions will not accept a retake for a letter grade.
