Tackling the Transfer Process: New “Associate Degree for Transfer” Campaign Student Success Videos What's New

Students on campus

One of the goals laid out in the Vision for Success is to increase, by 35 percent, the number of California community college students transferring annually to a California State University or University of California campus over five years. To help meet that goal, the Chancellor’s Office is expanding the statewide awareness campaign for the Associate Degree for Transfer program. One of the integral pieces of our campaign is to highlight the successes of real students who have gone through this pathway and can speak to how this program has allowed them to get on the path to their dream future.

These videos take an innovative creative approach in telling the story of each student’s transfer process. In an effort to highlight the aspects of Associate Degree for Transfer most relevant to students planning their pathways, we have woven together the individual stories of six individuals who have gone through the program. Each video serves as a piece of the transfer “puzzle”: they can be watched together, to showcase the full story arc, or separately, to focus on the subject most important to the viewer.

We have chosen video topics based on the five key factors identified during the research phase that make the Associate Degree for Transfer the best way for students to transfer into the CSU system with a degree. These five videos cover the “Advantages” of the program, the importance of a “Clear Path,” having a “Saved Spot” in the CSU system, completing your degree in a “Faster Way” and ultimately, being “Financially Smart” about your college plans. Additionally, we showcase transfer options to the UC system in a separate “UC Transfer Pathway” video.

The videos will be hosted on our new website, to be launched at the end of June 2018. We will also be sharing these via social media.
