Transfer Paths to Four-Year Universities

LACC has transfer articulation agreements with the University of California campuses (e.g. UCLA, UC Berkley, UC San Diego), California State University (e.g. CSULA, CSU Long Beach, CSU Northridge), and various prestigious private universities, including University of Southern California (USC) and Loyola Marymount University (LMU). Many international students successfully complete part of university coursework at LACC and transfer to their desired four-year universities to earn a Bachelor's Degree. LACC's international counselors, along with Transfer Center counselors and specialists, will assist your successful transfer paths to four-year universities through education planning, application assistance, and connecting you with the right resources. Come to ISP and ask about your transfer options!
