Transfer Options


Citrus College offers the first two years of a university education. Counselors and advisors are available to help you plan your transfer program, and the Transfer Center counselors can assist you in choosing and applying to the university that is right for you.

University education in the United States requires students to take a variety of introductory "general education" courses in several fields, including language and critical thinking, natural sciences, cultural studies, and social and behavioral sciences.

At Citrus College, you are able to complete general education courses, as well as courses required for your major to transfer to a university to complete your bachelor's degree.

By choosing to complete your transfer program at Citrus College, you will receive a high quality education at a very low cost.

You will also have the advantage to transfer to a possibly more prestigious school, due to already having U.S. college credits. The admissions rate of international students from Citrus College to the University of California for the 2016-2017 year was 77%.  In addition, Citrus College ranked 7th in California in awarding Associate Degree for Transfer, which guarantees admission to the California State University System.
