Student Testimonials

"Transferring to California Baptist University has been the best decision I have ever made. It is amazing to be in a school environment where you are important. You are an individual with a name and not just a number. The professors genuinely care a lot about you and will go the extra mile to make sure that you will succeed. This campus has so much to offer students, you will truly feel like you are part of a community."
Kaylan Els (South Africa, transferred from CSU San Bernardino)


"I really encourage students to transfer to CBU. They really care about the students. The learning experience is really good. Most of the professors that I took classes with were really helpful and want to teach us all the learning experience they have. They care about the international students a lot and are always able to help."
Osama Daqa (Jordan, transferred from Mt. San Jacinto College)


"I transferred to CBU from RCC in Spring 2020. When I was exhausted and frustrated by studying abroad, CBU was there and welcomed me. Friends I’ve met here are nice, respectful, and supportive. Instructors always help students to succeed in whatever class the would take. What I love the most about CBU is that I found God being with me as taking classes and chapels and talking with people at school!"
Sikyung Kim (South Korea, transferred from Riverside City College)

If you have graduated from a US institution or are currently working toward your graduate degree, a maximum of 9 semester units at the graduate level may be accepted in transfer toward fulfilling degree requirements.

"Transferring to California Baptist University was a wise choice for me to pursue my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. I like the small class size at CBU and the CBU professors are excellent. They are very open and candid about life and experience and helped me establish connections with other professionals in the field. Happy to learn from them!"
