Report: Students Need Transfer HelpNovember 4, 2016 |

Too many students at California’s community colleges are confused about how to transfer to a California State University campus and remain unfamiliar with a new degree program designed to help them with the move, according to a report by a research organization at Sacramento State University.
The process of taking the right courses to transfer “remains complex and unwieldy” despite efforts by colleges and the state Legislature to streamline it, the study by the Education Insights Center (EdInsights) said. The report – “Trial and Error” – found that many community college students rely on trial and error to figure out transfer requirements for Cal State campuses and majors, leading them to take too many classes or the wrong ones.
