UC and CSU Resources

Below you will find various resources to help you through the process of transferring to a California State University or University of California campus.

Selecting Courses for Transfer

As a prospective transfer student, it is important to make sure that the community college courses you take are acceptable to the university for transfer credit. ASSIST is California’s official statewide repository of transfer information for the CSU and UC university systems, offering easy access to a single database of course transfer information. ASSIST will help you determine if you will receive credit for courses you’ve already taken or plan to take and how those courses will apply to a specific academic major or general education requirement. Please use www.assist.org to check which Solano classes are transferable to CSU or UC campuses.

Paying for UCs and CSUs

Most transfer students receive some sort of financial aid from universities after transfer. Students should fill out either the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) to receive financial aid. Other information about financial aid and scholarships can be found on the “Paying for College” page on the left-hand navigation menu of the Transfer Center website.

UC Financial Aid Resources 

Student Financial Support at the UC Office of the President wants students to know that a UC degree is financially achievable. They have released a series of short 90-second videos answering the top questions students have about the cost of attendance and how to pay for their education.

These videos are public and do not required a Facebook or Twitter account to view.

UC also hosted a student panel to get their perspective on how they were able to afford a UC education:

  • Think you can’t afford UC? Students and alums share how they made it work.  Facebook   (31:01)
