For the 17th year running, Santa Monica College remains the #1 school in transfers to the University of California (UC).
SMC also leads all other schools in transfers to the California State University and USC.
Nearly 1,000 students transferred to UCLA, Berkeley, and other UC campuses during the 2006-07 school year. That same year, more Latinos/Chicanos and African Americans transferred from SMC to UC than any other school.
“These are incredible stats,” said Dan Nannini, SMC Transfer Center coordinator. “Truly, this accomplishment is a team effort. Advertising, outreach, and international recruiting bring great students in. Admitting and enrolling students expeditiously and efficiently is critical. Counseling them into the right classes to make students not just eligible, but also admissible, is so, so important. And our faculty not only teaches but encourages students to reach their goals and dreams.”
