CBU embraces transfer pathway for California Community College graduates
Riverside, Calif. (July 25, 2018) – California Baptist University has joined other member institutions of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) in supporting a transfer pathway agreement with the California Community College’s Chancellor office.
A memorandum of understanding was signed by the AICCU President Kristen Soares and California Community College’s Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley on July 25. The transfer agreement is geared for community college students who graduate with an Associate of Arts or an Associate in Science degree and desire to continue their educational training at CBU or another four-year independent, nonprofit institution in California.
Under the agreement, AICCU institutions commit to guaranteeing admission for community college students who meet the transfer pathway criteria. Qualifying students will be accepted with a junior standing with a minimum of 60 units transferred.
“CBU is excited to collaborate with our local community colleges by facilitating one more student pathway to a bachelor’s degree,” said Wayne Fletcher, associate provost for academic services at CBU. “For those specific associate degree transfer pathways, which CBU offers, we are committed to ensuring students complete their bachelor degree as quickly and efficiently as possible—experiencing CBU’s unique culture which focuses on academic, personal and spiritual growth.
