Our Mission

The mission of the SBCC Transfer Academy is to ensure a transfer culture by providing comprehensive support services to empower, inform and educate students seeking to transfer to a four-year institution. The Transfer Academy team is committed to provide quality, holistic professional services that are responsive to students’ individual needs.  Our goal is to increase visibility, awareness of services, access to transfer information, build partnerships and, most importantly, prepare students to successfully transfer to both public and private baccalaureate-granting educational institutions.

The Transfer Academy Program

As one of the leading community colleges in California - and the nation - Santa Barbara City College is known for its excellent transfer rates to four-year colleges and universities. The cornerstone of this reputation is a college-wide commitment to ensuring that you are provided every opportunity to succeed academically and personally by offering you excellent teaching and support services through partnerships with four-year institutions, a highly transferable curriculum and a comprehensive Transfer Center.

The Transfer Academy (TA) assures you of transfer in a timely manner to the prestigious University of California System, ranked among the top teaching and research institutions in the United States. UC Santa Barbara leads all campuses with the most SBCC transfer students, who make up about 1/3 of their transfer pool. California State University Channel Islands is one of the 23 CSU's that are served by the Transfer Academy. The CSU is a leader in high-quality, accessible, student-focused higher education and is the largest, most diverse, and one of the most affordable university systems in the country. Lastly, Antioch University, a private institution in Santa Barbara offers a unique education that integrates theory and practice.
