OXNARD COLLEGE STUDENTS TO BENEFIT FROM ADMISSION ADVANTAGE WITH UCSB
Oxnard College has just signed a major “Transfer Admission Agreement” with the University of California, Santa Barbara that assures that transferring OC students will be admitted to the University of California at Santa Barbara.
The Oxnard College-UCSB Transfer Admission Agreement guarantees that participating Oxnard College students will receive admission to the Santa Barbara campus after completing specific transfer requirements. The agreement covers general admission to UCSB but not necessarily admission to certain majors that have advanced admission criteria such as those in the College of Letters and Science that require specific prerequisites or a higher GPA.
Students who sign an intent to transfer from Oxnard College in advance and apply to UCSB during the Nov. 1-30, 2001 application filing period are assured admission to the Fall 2002 quarter if they meet the terms of the agreement. Students must be enrolled at Oxnard College while completing the last 30 of their 60 UC-transferable units required for admission, have cumulative GPA of 2.8 on all UC-transferable courses, and show early completion of the courses required for admission as a transfer student.
A major advantage of the agreement is that OC students will fully understand what courses they are required complete both general education requirements and lower division requirements for specific majors, said Dr. Anthony Tricoli, Executive Vice President of Student Learning at Oxnard College.
“The University of California, Santa Barbara is working with Oxnard College to remove the barriers to the baccalaureate degree for our students from the Oxnard area and for all our future students who live in Ventura County. This is a huge win for our students,” he explained.
According to Betty Huff, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services & Management at UCSB, the transfer agreement enables Oxnard College and UCSB to achieve several goals, among them enabling OC students to follow a course of study that allows them to begin upper division work immediately upon transfer and facilitating cooperation between the counseling offices and the transfer centers at their respective campuses.
“At the University of California, Santa Barbara we worked on a campus model for partnering with the community colleges,” said Ms. Huff. “While we obviously hope to increase the number of community college students transferring to the university, we believe that the real value of the agreement is to help community college students be fully prepared to succeed at a four-year university while removing the anxiety of whether they will be admitted to the university,” she added.
“It will be a great opportunity for Oxnard College students to attend a premier institution,” agreed Ramiro Sanchez, Dean of Liberal Education at Oxnard College and one of several college representatives who helped to negotiate the agreement. “This will be the beginning of a strong partnership between our two campuses,” he added.
The University of California, Santa Barbara offers more than 170 degree programs and more than 90 majors, the most popular of which are Engineering (Computer Science), Business Economics, Biological Sciences, Communication, Psychology and Political Science.
