Tips of the Month

The time has come…the CSU and UC applications are both available!  Now is the best time to start to allow yourself enough time and avoid late submission.  Both UC and CSU applications are due November 30th.

Here are some tips to help you start the application process:

CSU (https://www2.calstate.edu/apply

  • You will also need to indicate what courses you plan to take for the remainder of your time at GCC. If you are unsure, meet with a counselor to map out what courses remain for your intended goal.
  • Identify the courses you are using to fulfill the golden four: Oral Communication, English Composition, Critical Thinking, and Math/Quantitative Reasoning.

UC (www.universityofcalifornia.edu):

  • The UC application also requires you to enter all courses you have taken.  Input courses exactly as they appear on your transcript, including those in which you received ‘F’s, ‘W’s, ‘I’s, etc.  You will also need to indicate what courses you plan to take for the remainder of your time at GCC.

  • Prepare a list and concise descriptions of activities, awards, and volunteer work you participated in.  Include the most significant and relevant activities that are meaningful to you.

  • Begin outlining and writing your personal insight questions on a word document.  Make sure you do not exceed the word limit. Once complete, copy and paste it on the application.  

Remember that you need 60 transferable units by the end of spring 2020 to be considered for fall 2020 admission to the UCs and CSUs.

Want to see a counselor but can’t come in person?  
GCC is excited to announce that we now offer online counseling services!  Online Counseling is a web-based service which allows students to connect with an academic counselor online and complete many of the services available during an in-person drop-in or appointment session.  For more information please visit: www.glendale.edu/onlinecounseling
