CHAFFEY COLLEGE PARTNERS WITH CALIFORNIA BAPTIST UNIVERSITY IN PROVIDING TRANSFER OPPORTUNITY

(Rancho Cucamonga, CA) Chaffey College and California Baptist University (CBU) entered into a partnership to provide an enhanced and seamless transfer process. Officials from the California Baptist University and Chaffey College announced that they will sign a transfer agreement at a ceremony on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 2:00 pm at Chaffey College

California Baptist University's David Poole, Vice President for Online and Professional Studies and Dr. Henry Shannon, Chaffey College Superintendent/President will sign the agreement during a formal ceremony in the Student Activities Lounge on the Chaffey College Rancho Cucamonga campus. The program is the third such transfer agreement to be signed by Chaffey College officials.

"By creating this agreement with Cal Baptist, it opens the transfer opportunities for our students," said Dr. Shannon. "They help reinforce a number of initiatives designed to strengthen and build upon existing articulation efforts," he added. The Transfer Admission Guarantee agreement promises eligible Chaffey College transfer students admission to California Baptist University.

"These types of agreements are beneficial to both the students and the institutions involved," said Jenny Dannelley, Director of Transfer Center at Chaffey College. "Many more students are striving to transfer," she added. "Cal Baptist is a superior university and we are so pleased to be able to offer our students the opportunity to participate in this transfer program," said Dannelley.

All matriculated Chaffey students are eligible to apply to the Transfer Admission Guarantee. Requirements include completing a minimum of 12 transferable semester units and earning a minimum 2.0 GPA in all previously completed coursework; selecting a baccalaureate-level academic program for which there is an official articulation agreement between the two schools; achieving grades of 'C' or higher in all general education/critical breadth requirements; and completing the formal CBU application process..

The primary goals of the agreement are to increase the transfer rate from Chaffey College to California Baptist University, augment the completion rate of Chaffey students once they enroll at California Baptist University, and coordinate course work between the two. Both institutions will evaluate the program for effectiveness on an annual basis.
