A Welcome Message From
Dean Steven Howell

"We deeply value transfer students in the School of Engineering and Computer science. Transfer students can place directly into our upper division courses and have done very well during their time at Pacific. Several valedictorians have come to us from a community college. We are confident that our community college pre-engineering and computer science programs will create a smooth path and transition to Pacific."   

Modesto Junior College (MJC) and University of the Pacific are collaborating to offer students the opportunity to complete their lower division requirements at MJC and transition seamlessly into Pacific's Bachelor of Science in Engineering Degree program. Pacific's guaranteed Cooperative Education Program, which features two academic terms of paid work, further assists students with substantial income, practical experience and job placement.

Faculty Advising at Pacific

Students should confirm their course planning and articulations with a faculty advisor at Pacific or through the ROAR site. Pacific is willing to provide you with academic advising while you are still at the community college. You must complete Calculus I first and then you may contact us to arrange an appointment with a faculty advisor for your respective major. For more information, contact:

How soon can you transfer?

Community college students can transfer to the School of Engineering and Computer Science at any point in their academic program. Most state colleges require that community college students complete their entire freshman and sophomore curriculum prior to transferring to the four-year universities. This is not true at Pacific. If you do not have a least 15 units of college credit, then Pacific will also require the SAT or ACT and will heavily consider your high school academic records as well. The stronger your grades and the harder your courses, the sooner you could be admitted to Pacific.

English 1A

Most colleges have a basic writing course called, "English 1A" or something very similar. If your writing skills are very strong, you will not be required to take a course like this at Pacific (you will be given a reading and a writing test to determine whether you have passed Pacific's Fundamental Skills Requirement in reading and writing). But it is a good course anyhow, so you may want to consider taking it at your current college, thereby exempting yourself from any possibility of having to take it once you get to Pacific. (English 1A does not count as a General Education course.)
