As a public community college, College of the Desert is part of the tripartite system of higher education in California. Students may complete their lower division (freshman and sophomore level) course requirements here and transfer to a four-year college or university with full junior standing (60 semester units).
Priority admission at California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC) is given to upper division California community college transfers.
Requirements at private and out-of-state institutions vary considerably, and you should consult your transfer university early to learn what its transfer admission requirements are.
Changes in admission, general education, major preparation and other selection requirements are subject to change, and may impact your transfer to the university.
Meet regularly with your faculty advisor and university admission staff, keep current with your university's catalogue requirements, and update your educational plan each semester to confirm your choice of classes.
Have you given your references sufficient information about yourself (e.g. a resume, a copy of your transcript) and ample time to write them?
