Lassen Community College, Chico State sign Transformational Agreement to support transfer student success

Educators celebrate a new agreement to benefit transfer students.

Chico State and seven community colleges — including Lassen Community College — came together Monday, April 29, 2024, in an incredible demonstration of solidarity to support the educational dreams of transfer students from across the North State region.

Carie Camacho, Interim Superintendent/President, Lassen Community College said,  “We’re very excited to continue our partnership, with the addition of guaranteed admission. It truly will be lifesaving for the students of our small town. This is a perfect university for them. It’s two hours away, but they are just a short car drive when they want to visit home.”

President Steve Perez and leadership from Butte College, College of the Siskiyous, Feather River College, Lassen Community College, Shasta College, Woodland Community College and Yuba College signed Memoranda of Understanding to formalize dual admission and streamlined transfer for students interested in pursuing their bachelor’s degree at Chico State.

This guaranteed admission and accompanying support mechanisms lay the groundwork to simplify and ease transfer students’ pathways to pursue four-year degrees, credentials, and further education within their region.

The benefits of the collaboration include that Chico State guarantees admission to students from those seven colleges as long as they meet minimum eligibility requirements and apply by published deadlines; Chico State will extend a dual admission program invitation through the Transfer Success Pathway (TSP) to eligible first-time, first-year applicants at the end of their high school career after being denied admission; that each college will establish a mechanism for early identification of students who are interested in transferring and schedule a Chico State campus tour for those students; and that Chico State educational opportunities will be promoted at the individual community college campuses.
