Welcome to Folsom Lake College's Transfer Services!
MISSION STATEMENT Transfer Services are geared toward assisting students in exploring post-secondary educational options while providing support and guidance on the steps necessary to transfer to a four-year college or university. This is accomplished through a variety of services and activities that include:
Comprehensive Transfer Counseling
University Representative Visits
College Application Workshops
Transfer Exploration Classes (HCD 310, 318)
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Working in collaboration with an FLC College Counselor, students will:
know the steps required to transfer to a four- year college or university.
be able to identify resources that assist with transfer preparation.
Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT's): SB 1440 establishes the Student Transfer Achievement Reform (STAR) Act. SB 1440 requires a community college district to grant an associate degree for transfer to a student in that student’s field of study once a student has met degree and transfer requirements for a particular major. Upon completion of the transfer associate degree, the student is eligible for transfer with junior standing into the California State University (CSU) system. Students will be given priority consideration when applying to a particular program that is similar to the student’s community college area of emphasis. The bill prohibits a community college district or campus from adding local course requirements in addition to requirements of the STAR Act, and prohibits the CSU from requiring a transferring student to repeat courses similar to those taken at the community college that counted toward their associate degree for transfer.
At this time, FLC offers 15 Associate for Transfer Degrees (ADT's): Administration of Justice, Art History, Art-Studio, Business, Communication Studies, Early Childhood Education, English, Geography, Geology, Kinesiology, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, Sociology, and Theatre Arts. More are being developed! Please see a counselor for specific program requirements.
Connect with a University Rep! FLC is fortunate to have CSU Sacramento and UC Davis representatives on campus weekly to meet with students via appointment. We also have a number of other colleges who come to campus throughout the semester to connect with students. Our CSUS and UC Davis schedule can be accessed here. Please call 916-608-6526 to schedule an appointment.
