HBCU Transfer Agreement

Transfer Agreements with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)



In an agreement signed March 17, 2015 between the California Community Colleges and several HBCUs, California community college transfer students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher and, either an AA-T/AS-T or completion of 30 transferrable semester units, are guaranteed transfer admission to participating HBCU partner schools.

Students who qualify for this guarantee also receive an application fee waiver code when using the Common Black College Application to apply to the partner HBCU (four max).

HBCUs were established primarily to serve the higher education needs of the African-American community, however they are open to students of all ethnicities. There are more than 100 HBCUs in the country, with most located in the South and on the East Coast.  Most award bachelor’s degrees in many fields. Some also award master’s and doctorate degrees.


  • Research the HBCUs and identify target HBCU Transfer Guarantee Partner schools. You can also obtain more information by completing their HBCU Student Contact Form.
