Private or Out-of-State
Every semester, IVC transfer students are accepted to a multitude of California private and out-of-state colleges and universities. Unlike for CSU and UC, there is no central location to find GPA, general education, major preparation, and other transfer requirements because each institution is independent. We suggest students visit the individual school websites to find the most accurate and up-to-date information. Below, you will find some helpful links for private and out-of-state transfer research.
