Tips on Transferring From a Community College to a University
Venue: To Be Confirmed
Speaker: University of California, Berkeley, and San Matteo Colleges of Silicon Valley
Online registration is required here

U.S. Community Colleges play a vital role which is unique to developed western countries. They give their citizens open access to higher education without barriers. Transferring from a community college to a four-year institution is a very practical way to enter university. In order for the transfer applications to be reviewed, prospective transfer students must meet “Eligibility Transfer Requirements” by the university. Approximately, 40% of Bachelor’s degree students in the United States begin their studies at a community college. Without a doubt, where you choose to start college is not as important as where you ultimately earn your Bachelor’s degree. Please join EducationUSA, University of California, Berkeley, and San Matteo Colleges of Silicon Valley to learn more about the university transfer from community colleges, and the process of transferring from community colleges to selective universities in the U.S.

Tuesday, August 30, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
