Transfer Basics


Transferring to California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) Campuses

Transfer information for the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) Campuses can be found on ASSIST. ASSIST is an academic planning tool that can help you determine if the courses you are taking at LAVC are equivalent to courses at the CSU and UC systems.  ASSIST also show how those courses will apply to a specific academic major or general education requirements.

A Student Educational Plan (SEP) is a semester by semester plan that helps you  know what courses to take each semester to reach your goal. Here are some guidelines to consider when creating a SEP:

  • Include prerequisite for all courses in your SEP, in the right order.
  • Include your major preparatory courses into your SEP.
  • Include all courses needed for general education.
