October not only means colder temperatures on campus at San Diego City College but also the start of the transfer application period for students. 

All California State University and University of California campuses are accepting transfer applications through Nov 30. 

Read below for important dates and resources.

Fall Transfer Fair 

City’s Transfer and Career Center will be holding a Transfer Fair on Tuesday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the A patio. Representatives from several universities will be available to meet with students and help with transfer applications. 

Over 40 universities will attend, including all CSUs and UCs, as well as several private and out-of-state schools. 

Transfer Application Workshops 

The center also will host a series of workshops during the transfer application period.

The center asks students to complete as much of the application as they can before attending a workshop. At the workshop, students will be able to have their applications reviewed and questions answered.

The Writing Center will also hold writing workshops to help students with the UC application personal insight questions.

These workshops will be offered in person or via Zoom. To sign up visit here
