To write a TAA a student must have completed 30 transferable units and have a 2.0 GPA for CSU, Golden Gate and Chapman and a 2.9 GPA for UC (some majors may require a higher GPA). Santa Clara University requires a GPA of 3.3 in transferable courses for Arts, Science and Engineering. The school of business requires a 3.5 GPA. Some of the private universities do not require the completion of 30 transferable units. Personal, individualized counseling and transfer admission agreements are offered through the Transfer Center and through various counseling services on campus.
Upon completion of 30 transferable units at the required GPA, the student signs an agreement under the auspices of Hartnell College and one or more of the above listed universities; once the student completes specific requirements and 60 transferring units, he or she can transfer to the college or university where the agreement was written.
Hartnell College has course transfer credit (articulation) agreements with most California State Universities and Colleges, and the University of California. In general Hartnell courses numbered 1 to 99, inclusive, or designated A, B, C or D are accredited to colleges and universities. However, many courses numbered 100 and above are transferable in certain disciplines at some colleges. The student should check carefully with his/her counselor or the institution s/he plans to attend. Articulation agreements are also made for many of the career education programs offered, such as Agriculture, Administration of Justice, Business Administration, Computer Science Systems, and Nursing Baccalaureate Programs.
Students should consult a Hartnell counselor in planning their programs. For further information, contact the Transfer Center at (831) 759-6007 or go to the Transfer Center, Room, HCC-119.
