Welcome to Career and Transfer Connections. We provide resources and services to all Sierra College students with a commitment to their education and successful transfer to a university. We are also committed to supporting the underserved and historically underrepresented students in the transfer process.
Our goal is to provide students and college faculty with information for transfer research and effective transfer planning to the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), out-of-state and independent colleges and universities.
To provide the best possible services in meeting the needs of our students, the following activities and services are available:
These activities, events, and resources collectively assist students in the transition from Sierra College to baccalaureate colleges and universities.
The complexity of transferring is further reduced by the use of course Articulation. Articulation lists equivalent lower-division major coursework to be completed for transfer to the CSU, UC system and specific private institutions.
Visit: www.assist.org for information regarding lower division major course articulation for the UC and CSU systems.
TAG agreements are programs entered into by the student and a UC or private school. It is a contract listing the exact courses you must take and the GPA required for guaranteed admission to that institution. All the UC's (except for UC Berkeley, UCSD and UCLA) offer Transfer Admission Guarantees (TAGs) to eligible California community college students. Sign up for your TAP (Transfer Admission Planner) your first semester at Sierra College or as soon as possible to start your TAG at http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/transfer/guarantee/
To attend an informational TAG workshop, contact the Career and Transfer Connections at (916) 660-7481, Counseling Center at (916) 660-7400.
