Transfer to California Private Colleges and Universities

In addition to campuses within the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) system, there are over 100 independent or private colleges and universities in California.  The majority of these independent institutions are members of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU), which represents private, non-profit, and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredited institutions located throughout the state.

California independent colleges and universities vary widely in terms of size, mission.  The requirements for admission, general education, majors, and transfer to a California independent college or university vary by campus. Preparing to transfer to an independent college or university requires careful planning and course selection.

Students are advised to consult with a De Anza College counselor or academic advisor as early as possible to confirm your choice of classes.
