What you need to know?

Like other community colleges, MCCD offers "lower division" (freshman and sophomore) General Education and major preparation courses equivalent to those at a university. After you transfer, you will complete your "upper division" (junior and senior) coursework at a CSU, UC, or Private University.

Merced College offers  rigorous coursework to help prepare students for success when they transfer to a four year university. It is the mission of the Merced College Transfer Center to meet the needs of students who are preparing to obtain a bachelor's degree. We are available to provide students with accurate and up-to-date information that will help the transfer process be a smooth transition from the Community College setting to a University setting.

Contact the Merced College Transfer Center to schedule an appointment with a Transfer Counselor or University Representatives, Monday thru Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. Contact Deidra Brinson at or (209) 384-6243 and/or Alexis Alkema at or             (209) 384-6053 for assistance.
