The Chicago School of Professional Psychology & Pacific Oaks College Announce Commitment to Expansion of Transfer Pathway for California Community College Students.


TCS partner colleges – The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and Pacific Oaks College today announced their commitment and support of a transfer pathway between the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) and the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office.

“This program is a powerful extension of our System’s commitment to advance student success and community impact,” says TCS Education System President, Dr. Michael Horowitz. “Engaging in ‘Radical Cooperation’ with organizations like AICCU is key to meaningfully expanding student access to quality education.”

The pathway is designed for college students graduating with an Associate in Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or an Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) from a California community college and wishing to transfer to four-year independent, nonprofit institutions like The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and Pacific Oaks College. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the AICCU President Kristen Soares and California Community College’s Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley to further strengthen the commitment of California’s independent nonprofit higher education sector toward the access and success of students, and affordability of quality education across the state.
