Fullerton College tops CSU list of Latino transfers

Posted: Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Newly-released data from the California State University (CSU) system indicates that Fullerton College transferred more Latino students to the CSU than any of the state’s other 111 community colleges. The college is also ranked number one in the number of Mexican-American student transfers.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, 443 Latino students transferred to the CSU system, a 5% increase from the previous year. Neighboring California State University, Fullerton remains the most popular transfer choice for Fullerton College students. The college is ranked fourth in the state in the number of total CSU transfers.

In 2011, Fullerton College was one of the first community colleges to adopt a goal focusing on the success rates of Latino students. Campus resources such as the Cadena-Transfer Center, Puente Program, Summer Scholars Transfer Institute, and the Transfer Achievement Program also helped assist students in the transfer process and ultimately boosted rates.

“The success of our Latino students is imperative given the fact that Hispanic Americans are the fastest-growing demographic group in the country,” says Fullerton College President Dr. Rajen Vurdien. “The college takes its role as a Hispanic-Serving Institution seriously and will continue to improve our Latino transfer rates so that we remain number one.”
