Transferring to a University

Transferring to a four year university is no different in preparation and course work if you are a U.S. citizen or non-citizen. The difference is the type of financial aid and resources that are available to AB 540/Dream Act students. Worries of being able to afford college because of your status should not hinder you from transferring. In addition to a savings plan and working, if you are able to work, you will have to be resourceful in seeking scholarships, grants, support, and resources from the universities you are considering attending.

Agribusiness

"The agribusiness program and the different teachers in this field have helped me in so many ways and shaped what I want to do in my life. They have also helped me get an internship. This program has prepared me for Cal Poly by not only being involved and helping in the community but by helping me realize how many people in the community are willing to help students succeed. My Career goal is to transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and someday be involved in the nursery business interacting with different plant breeders."
