Counseling and Advising


Transfer is a process, not an event!

The earlier you begin the process, the more likely the experience will be hassle-free and successful.

To help ensure transfer success, the Transfer Center provides services and resources which help identify, encourage, motivate and facilitate transfer to other colleges and universities.

Services available:

  • Academic Advising
  • College Transfer Day
  • Transfer Admissions Agreements
  • Four-year University Representative Visits

The Transfer Center sponsors workshops and programs that are of interest to students planning to transfer to four-year universities. Please contact the Transfer Center for additional information about transfer programs and services.

As you consider your transfer choices, don't exclude Oregon just because you are not a resident there. There are public institutions in Oregon that offer you, as a California resident, an opportunity to attend without paying non-resident tuition. Through the Oregon Exchange Agreement, eligible CR students may transfer to Southern Oregon University in Ashland or Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls and not pay out-of-state tuition. While on this exchange, however, you are precluded from establishing Oregon residency. This preserves your California residency status should you decide to return for additional study in California. This exchange results in substantial tuition cost savings while providing additional transfer options. For additional information about the Oregon Exchange Agreement, contact the CR Admissions Office (476-4200).
