CSUS strengthens ties with Yuba college district

Yuba Community College District students will soon find it easier to transfer to California State University, Sacramento. At noon, Thursday, Sept. 26, the district and the University will sign an agreement aimed at increasing the transfer of students from the community college district to CSUS.

The memorandum of understanding between the district and the University will offer qualifying Yuba students guaranteed admission to CSUS, pre-admission advising, on-the-spot admission and other services designed to encourage and ease their transition to the four-year university. In addition to increasing the transfer rate between the district and the University, officials hope to improve the degree completion rate of those transfer students and encourage high-school students who may not already be considering a college education. The community college district has three campuses: Yuba College, Woodland Community College and Clear Lake Community College.

The agreement will be signed at a ceremony in the Yuba College Board Room, 2088 N. Beale Rd., Marysville. Speakers include Stephen Epler, YCCD superintendent/president; Donald Gerth, CSUS president; Susan Nicoletti, president of the YCCD board of trustees; Eric Gravenberg, CSUS associate vice president for student affairs; and David Farrell, YCCD dean of student development.
