Take a look!
Greetings from the
Transfer Center at Orange Coast College!
We hope you had a fun and relaxing winter break and are
ready for the Spring semester at OCC.
If you applied for fall 2015 admission at a CSU, this serves as
a follow-up on your “next steps” for making sure you complete the
application/admission requirements for fall 2015 admission.
First, make sure you are checking your email for any
electronic correspondence from the CSU campuses you applied to in the fall.
Email is the main form of communication universities use to transmit important
information to you once you’ve applied. You might want to check your spam
folders just in case any important emails didn’t make it to your inbox.
Second, some campuses require a “follow-up” to your fall
classes and grades, which you will have complete in the month of January
(NOW!). Make sure you check your email for links and procedures for completing
this online update. CSULB, SDSU, and CSUF are just a few of the campuses that
require this action in order to move on with your application review for
admission. In addition, some programs/majors also require supplemental
admission packets, which are due sometime in the spring (i.e. the Social Work
program at CSULB is due March 1). Make sure you pay attention to these
additional requirements asked by the university!
CSULB online updates/procedures (due by Feb 3, 2015): http://www.csulb.edu/depts/enrollment/admissions/overview-supplemental-application-transfer-applicants.pdf
SDSU updates/procedures (due by January 26, 2015): http://arweb.sdsu.edu/es/admissions/transfers/applied/supplemental.html
CSUF deadlines for fall 2015 applicants: http://www.fullerton.edu/admissions/ProspectiveStudent/deadlines.asp?Calendar=transfers
Please note: Failure to update fall grades (if required
by the CSU campus) by the due date will result in an immediate denial for
Third, apply for financial aid (if applicable). The
2015-2016 FAFSA application is now open. If you will be attending a CSU campus
this fall, make sure to list all campuses you applied to on your FAFSA application.
The current application will cover financial aid need for the fall 2015 and
spring 2016 term. Priority due date is March 2, 2015. You can find the
FAFSA application at the following site: https://fafsa.ed.gov/
If you are an undocumented student (AB 540 eligible) in
California and want to apply for financial aid, you can apply at: https://dream.csac.ca.gov/ (March 2, 2015
is also your priority deadline)
Lastly, if you have any questions concerning your “next
steps” for CSU admission, contact our office or come in during “walk-in” hours.
You may also access appointments for CSU representatives and visit CSU campuses
in the spring through the Transfer Center office. Tour dates and representative
appointments will be posted in the month of February. Remember to check our
website for updates and upcoming events in the spring: http://www.orangecoastcollege.edu/student_services/counseling/transfer_center/Pages/default.aspx
Wishing you a productive and successful spring 2015
