Transfer Center

Transfer from Saddleback    

It is the mission of the Saddleback College Transfer Center to ensure a transfer culture by providing resources and counseling services to empower students so they can achieve their desired transfer goal and career objective.

"It's never too early to start thinking about Transfer!"

Transfer Center Fall Counseling

We have counselors available for "Transfer Express" counseling and a limited number of individual counseling appointments. Please call (949) 582-4328 on Friday mornings at 8:00 a.m. sharp, to book an appointment for the following week. Be advised that appointments fill up very quickly.

PLEASE NOTE: By making an appointment with a university representative, you are giving the Saddleback College Transfer Center consent to share your academic records on file (e.g. AP/IB scores, Saddleback College & Irvine Valley College transcripts, transcripts you submitted from other colleges) with the university representative. This allows the representative to evaluate your preparation for their university and identify future coursework needed to transfer.
