Porterville College Transfer Center
California State University
Minimum Admission Requirements:
- 60 CSU transferable units and 2.0 GPA
- One course from each of the following areas completed with “C” or higher:
- Oral communication
- Written communication
- Critical thinking
- 30 units of general education completed with “C” or higher in each course
A small number of transfer students will enter as lower-division transfer students (with fewer than 60 units). Many CSU campuses do not accept lower-division transfers. Please consult your PC counselor if you are interested in lower-division transfer eligibility.
Completion of IGETC or CSU General Education Breadth is recommended for most students. IGETC/CSU GE-Breadth certification will permit students to transfer without the need to take additional lower-division general education courses after transferring.
Make sure to complete transfer-level English and math courses as soon as possible. Most schools require you complete these courses by the end of the Spring semester before you transfer.
Major preparation is essential to be a competitive transfer student. Consult ASSIST to determine which PC courses will prepare you for your transfer major.
A maximum of 70 units taken at a community college will be applied towards the total number of units required for a BA/BS. Any additional transferable units will satisfy subject area requirements but not unit credit.
