University Tightens Policy on Transfers

Cal State Dominguez Hills will be enforcing a policy this fall that requires students who are transferring into the university from a community college to take all general education and remedial classes before they enroll.

As a result, the Carson campus will be offering a large number of courses in math and English over the summer. University officials said the classes will be offered to help community college transfer students qualify for admission by fall.

In previous years community college students could transfer to the school automatically if they had a 2.0 grade-point average and 56 units of credit.

The university has changed that policy beginning this fall so that students have the basic courses out of the way by the time they reach the four-year college.
