SMC Maintains No. 1 Spot in Transfers To UC


For the 23rd year in a row, Santa Monica College is No. 1 in transferring its students to the prestigious University of California. That’s according to the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, which recently released the 2012-13 data for community college students transferring to the University of California and to the California State University systems.

The numbers also show that Santa Monica College is tops for the third consecutive year in transferring African American and Latino students to the University of California.

In 2012-13, SMC sent a total of 1,057 students to UC campuses, far outpacing the next three feeder schools.

SMC’s transfers to the UC system included 31 African American students and 141 Latino students. This is the third year that SMC has increased its number of UC-transferring Latino students, up from 129 in 2011-12, and 117 in 2010-11.
