Courses are Only $46 a Unit
Community college is an excellent, popular, and low-cost option for California students who want to transfer to a four-year university. At only $46 a unit, it usually takes full-time students about two years to complete an associate's degree.
If you weren't admitted as a freshman to one of the best colleges in California (for example, UC Berkeley, UCLA, or Stanford,) getting a “No” is not the end of the world. You can simply transfer in as a junior.
- 29% of University of California graduates and 51% of California State University graduates started at a California community college.
- 50% of STEM degree graduates earned from a University of California campus transferred from a California Community College.
Jyodi Attended UC Davis then UCLA Medical School
I am a first-generation college student and was accepted to UC Davis, UC San Diego, and UCLA. I ended up choosing the Aggies. I graduated from UC Davis in large part because she earned one of the prestigious $40,000 Jack Kent Cooke scholarships while at Mission College.

Camille, a Bioengineering Student, Transferred to UC Berkeley
Mission College was integral to my success by helping build my Engineering core competencies (math & science) in an environment that cared about my academic goals. Professors like Dr. Faris created classes that are just as challenging as at transfer universities, but that offer the resources you need to do your best.

Engineering Transfer Student Monal Transferred to UC San Diego
During my time at Mission, I was able to explore and figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I decided that I was going to become an engineer. I would invent something that helps people, and start a business around it. I also learned how to be a good student, and I took Business classes in addition to STEM ones. Teachers at Mission were friendly, helpful, and encouraging.
