About Our Program


Our Mission

The objective of the California Community Colleges Transfer Guarantee to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Program is the development of transfer pathways that will facilitate a smooth transition for students from all of the California Community Colleges to partnered HBCUs. These pathways will simplify the transfer process and reduce students’ need to take unnecessary courses, thereby shortening the time to degree completion and saving student costs.  


Our 39 HBCU Partners

Thanks to an agreement signed March 17, 2015, between the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and select HBCUs, California community college students who complete certain academic requirements are guaranteed transfer to a participating HBCU.

We are proud to have partnered with a wide variety of HBCU institutions that offer a variety of degree programs and with varying regional locations that include rural, suburban, and urban communities.
