What is "Transfer?"

Transfer is the process of continuing your education at a university/college that confers baccalaureate degrees. Generally "transfer" is movement between any two educational institutions.
Students may prepare to apply and gain acceptance to a university or college after completing required general education and major preparation course work.  
Additional transfer information can be found in the Moorpark College Catalog.

There are basic transfer areas that students will focus on prior to transfer:

  • General Education Requirements
  • Major Preparation Courses
  • Minimum Required Transfer Units
  • Minimum Required GPA
