Special Notes: University of La Verne will accept the IGETC pattern also, so if considering transferring to a UC as well, follow the IGETC pattern instead of the CSU General Education pattern. If considering transferring to a CSU, you must satisfy the U.S. History & American Ideals requirement. If you plan to earn a teaching credential, you should take the CBEST soon after passing transferable math.  Teacher education program requirements are subject to state and legislative control and are dynamic in nature.  Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor before acting on these recommendations.

Students should transfer up to 84 semester units, and it is highly recommended that students be GE certified prior to matriculating at University of La Verne. Apply for financial aid between January 1 and March 2 prior to transfer if you can.

Allan Hancock College counselors are committed to providing students with quality transfer planning information. This pathway has been developed using a variety of resources provided by the four-year university. It is not an admission guarantee, but a recommendation intended to provide students with clear information about courses that they will need to take in order to successfully transfer. Every effort has been made to make this pathway as accurate as possible; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to stay aware of changes that may affect his or her transfer. Because of the dynamic nature of articulation information and admission policies, information provided within this pathway is subject to change.

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering

I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship. I then attended California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, to pursue an aerospace engineering degree. After just one year at Cal Poly, I was accepted into one of the most prestigious internship programs that NASA offers, the Aeronautics Academy.
