There are several transfer paths a student may choose to follow including transfer from a 2-year college to a 4-year institution or from one 4-year school to another.
Doing College has helped many students understand and access the transfer path options for:
- California’s Community College System and the University of California campuses
- California’s Community College System and the California State University campuses
- Private colleges and universities throughout the nation and abroad
Due to the many students nationwide seeking to transfer from one college to another, for one reason or another, the 2 hour minimum consultation fee has been put into place for transfer students.
In the first 2 hour paid consultation, Doing College provides an overview of transfer admissions from different types of colleges (community colleges, in-state and out-of-state public transfer options and private school transfer admissions), as well as the pros and cons of each and common pitfalls. We also can review a student’s academic history and help establish college and career goals.
Subsequent counseling sessions can accomplish the following objectives:
- Identify which transfer path(s), private and/or public, is right for you
- Provide a specific plan for the transfer process focused on the student’s particular interests and needs coupled with the transfer school requirements
- Develop a transfer college list balanced by admission probability
- Provide an organizing session to establish admission requirements and set a timeline
- Provide full guidance for essay development and completion of transfer applications
All sessions are currently held online.
Thank you for all the guidance you gave my daughter, Julia, last year. She wanted to go to OT school but her grades were not good enough, so you recommended she go to OTA school instead as a bridge to an OT program if her grades were good.
She was accepted to Mercy College (in Dobbs Ferry, NY), received a handful of aid and scholarships and started their OTA program fall of 2021. She works in the morning at her job at the doctors office and goes to school in the evening. Her GPA is a 3.9 and is loving every minute of it.
She had her first day of fieldwork today at a local hospital and her OTR was so impressed with her knowledge base and ability to be hands-on right away. She already told her that they would love to have her for her "fieldwork 2" in the fall. She came home exhausted but with a big smile on her face.
Thank you for the support and guidance you gave her to take this path when others told her to find a completely different career path. She is doing exactly what she is supposed to be doing.

Working with Elizabeth was a great experience. My son was a student at Cal Poly and decided to change majors since he was struggling with his major. He attended a community college to improve his grades and determine what major would be best for him. By the time he improved his grades, the schools in California were impacted by the state’s financial crisis and he had no idea how to get back into any school.
Elizabeth met with my son and reviewed his transcripts and suggested he apply to CSU schools. She even contacted and put my son in touch with transfer counselors at Cal State East Bay and SF State. He was then able to take charge. He even was motivated enough to get on line for community college coursework registration at 4am one morning to ensure he would get the classes he need to transfer! That would never have happened without Elizabeth’s proactive and positive approach. My son has been accepted to SF State in the spring. Without Elizabeth’s guidance I truly believe Richard would not be back in school with a bright future in business."
