Neighboring California State University, Fullerton remains the most popular transfer choice for Fullerton College students. The college is ranked fourth in the state in the number of total CSU transfers.
In 2011, Fullerton College was one of the first community college to adopt a goal to focusing specially on the success rates of Latino students. Campus resources such as the Cadena-Transfer Center, Puente Program, Summer Scholars Transfer Institute, and the Transfer Achievement Program also helped assist students in the transfer process and ultimately boosted rates.
