HBCU Transfer Agreement
The California Community Colleges Transfer Guarantee to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Program makes it easy for students to get from a California community college to an HBCU. This program simplifies the transfer process and reduces the need for students to take unnecessary courses, which shortens the time it takes to get a degree and saves money along the way.
