Transfer from Another College

If you attended a different college but are new to Sierra, follow these steps to apply and register for classes.

Steps to Getting Started

Before you begin the application process, it’s a good idea to gather the following materials:

  • Social Security Number.* If you have a DACA issued social security number, do not include it in your application. *If you are not a US citizen, you will also need your Alien Registration Number or VISA information.
  • Previous education information. Know the names and dates (month and year) of all high schools and colleges you’ve attended.
  • Email address. This is where we’ll send follow-up information about your application. If you do not have one, create one before you apply.

Step 2: Attend Career and Academic Planning (CAP)

  • Attend CAP. Before you register for classes, transfer students who have completed fewer than 12 units are required to attend a Career and Academic Planning Session. This will help you make educational choices based on your career goal(s) and develop a student educational plan (SEP) for how to get there. Contact the Counseling Department to register.
  • Schedule a Counseling appointment. Before you register for classes, transfer students who have completed more than 12 units should make an appointment with your academic counselor to create, review and/or update your student educational plan (SEP).

Step 3: Register for Classes

  • Ready4Reg. You’ll receive an email in mySierra around your time to register that will include FAQs, articles and short how-to videos about registration, how to add/drop classes, join a waitlist, withdraw from classes and more.
  • View Class Schedule. Find the class times and locations that work for you using our Class Schedule.
  • Register for classes. Sign up for classes on or after your registration time in mySierra.
  • Pay for classes. Your tuition fees are due when you register for classes. Learn more about our payment options.
