Welcome to the Grossmont College Transfer Center!

Please know: While the Grossmont College campus has been closed until further notice in response to COVID-19, it remains our goal to provide information for effective transfer planning to California State University (CSU), University of California (UC), Independent/Private or Out-of-State Colleges and Universities.  In an effort to provide the best services we can during this challenging time we are making as much information available online as possible and as soon as possible.  Please check back regularly.  We will get through this together and be stronger because of it.
