California Assembly Bill Seeks to Remove Barriers on Transfers from Community CollegesMarch 12, 2021 |
by Lois Elfman
Assembly Bill 928, the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act of 2021, proposes making the transfer process from two to four-year institutions clear by creating consistent and readily understandable pathways.
With 116 community colleges across the state of California, students are faced with figuring out what courses and curriculum they must pursue in order to be prepared to transfer to a four-year institution, including those in the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) systems. Community college students, particularly student of color and low-income students, often face barriers to successful application and transfer.
