University Transfers

  • Testimonial/Transfer Story:
    "Attending Diablo Valley College is probably one of the best decisions I ever made. The environment in DVC is just perfect for study because most of the students here aim to transfer into the top-ranking universities after two years of study. I was admitted to all nine of the UC campus and enrolled at UCLA. I also become very good friends with a lot of my classmates. We still stay in touch. And I'm currently working for the trading desk of a world-leading company. Looking backward a little bit, attending DVC is truly a life-changing decision." Kathy, China
