The Transfer Game: A Working Guide for Students.
Ginocchio, Peggy; Beverly-Grant, Cheryl
Designed as a guide for El Camino College (ECC) students considering transfer to a four-year institution, this booklet explains each step in the transfer process. Section A focuses on considerations in selecting a transfer institution that fits the student's educational goals and needs, including the existence of a bachelor's and graduate degree program in the student's chosen field, institutional reputation, and college environment. Section B offers guidance for meeting transfer requirements, providing general comments on transferring to the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) campuses and to private colleges. In addition, this section outlines steps in the certification of general education requirements and urges students to remain in contact with an academic counselor throughout their ECC enrollment. Section C explains the application process, including filing dates and documentation requirements. Sections D and E offer guidance in obtaining financial aid, scholarships, and loans. Finally, section F suggests a series of steps to take after the student has been accepted at the transfer institution. Appendixes include samples of pages from college catalogs, information on CSU general education requirements, a sample transcript with a key to reading it, instructions for writing the personal essay portion of the UC admissions application, sample financial aid forms, a glossary of terms, and a checklist.
