2 California’s Master Plan for Higher Education Since 1960, the California Master Plan for Higher Education has guided our public higher education system.The master plan states that students can complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program at a community college and if they meet certain requirements, they will be admitted to a UC or CSU campus.Today, more than ever, we are committed to helping students transfer to a 4-year university and realize their dreams to achieve a college degree.

10 Interested in transferring? Then you should know… In Fall 2010, 92 percent of new undergraduate transfers to the CSU came from the California Community Colleges.CSU Stanislaus, CSU Sacramento, UC Davis, and U. of the Pacific receive the largest number of transfer students from Delta College.At UC Davis for the Fall 2010 term, 92.9% of admitted transfer students were from California community colleges.CCC transfers have the highest priority for admission than any other group.Lower division prep at a CCC is comparable to lower division prep at a CSU/UCStudents who attend a community college can save a significant amount of money on tuition and housing.Community college transfer students who attain the Bachelor’s degree are employed at the same rate as students who enrolled in a 4-year college as freshman.Earnings of community college transfers and native 4-year students with a Bachelor’s degree are comparable.
11 Preparing for Delta College and beyond Develop a student education plan (SEP) with a counselor.Meet with a counselor at least once a semester to discuss your goals and to make any changes to your SEP.Take English and math courses as soon as you begin your college studies.Select a major and complete as many major preparation courses as possible.
