State university officials are touting a new website meant to ease transferring from community colleges.

The California Community College and the California State University systems have launched a “one-stop shop” website on the new Associate Degree for Transfer pathway that lets students earn an associate degree and a bachelor’s degree with no wasted units.

“For the student who’s saying, ‘I know what I want, and I know where I want to go,’ this is great option,” said Bruce Battle, College of the Canyons spokesman.

“Community colleges have always been a place for a lot of different people — the people who want to explore, people who are returning to school and know exactly what they want and people retraining for an entirely new field,” he said.

A few of the resources featured on the website include: details on how the new transfer pathway works, current information about the transfer majors available at CSU campuses through the program, interactive campus maps, application information and a degree-progress checklist.

“An Associate Degree for Transfer will ease the transfer process for California community college students to transfer to a CSU campus,” said Erik Skinner, acting California community colleges chancellor.

The website is a result of the Student Transfer Achievement Act written by state Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, which requires the California Community Colleges and California State University campuses to collaborate on the creation of this pathway.

“Anything that helps students make an informed decision — where you can have one place where you can get everything you need — is going to help students,” Battle said.
