Attention Students! Now is the time to come and complete your educational plan either through a workshop or a one-on-one with a counselor. Please call the Counseling Department so that we can set you up for the right appointment.
ATTENTION STUDENTS! Effective April 1, 2013 ALL transcripts submitted to Chaffey College will be evaluated for units completed and will be posted to your Chaffey transcript. An official request for unit evaluation is no longer required. If you are sending your transcripts electronically and your school’s transcript vendor requires an email address, please use firstname.lastname@example.org. Transcripts received as an attachment will not be accepted.
Official transcripts will also be required for Prerequisite/Corequisite Validations and Challenge Forms. (transcripts must be on file; allow 5-7 business days for processing.)
Please submit all transcripts directly to the Admissions and Records Office.
The Counseling staff will help you get off to the right start at Chaffey
College. Through assessment, orientation, and counseling we will evaluate
your skill level, introduce you to the programs and services we have to
offer, and help you select appropriate courses according to your abilities
and interests. If you take advantage of the information provided, you will
be able to: apply what you know about your likes, interests, and dreams to chart
an educational course at the college level; select classes for a certificate, associate degree, and/or transfer
program; and better understand the terminology associated with college programs.
We also have Faculty Advisors that provide the opportunity for students to obtain valuable major and career information regarding their chosen field of study. Faculty Advisors are located in various locations across Chaffey College’s campuses. Click here to see a list of Faculty Advisors and please feel free to contact them!
