Transfer advising provides the educational road map for successful transfer from Palo Alto College to the four-year university. Transfer advising on campus includes:

  • Recruiter Visitation Schedules with dates when university representatives visit to answer questions and provide admissions information
  • Transfer Fair each semester with over 30 universities providing admissions and program information
  • Education Express field trip visits to four-year universities
  • Transfer-themed workshops providing insights for a successful transfer;
  • Transfer Advising Guides (formerly called 2+2 Plans) providing information on courses to complete prior to transfer to the university. 
Transfer Advising Guides

Some universities use the term “transfer advising guide” and some use “2+2” but both terms refer to a degree plan that lists the courses you take at Palo Alto College before transferring. Students should use the transfer advising guides to determine what courses to take at Palo Alto College, as these plans list the requirements within each degree. 

Transfer advising guides can be accessed here
