A new report out today looks at the progress one program is making toward easing transfers between community colleges and the California State University system.

The program lets students earn associate degrees at community colleges and then transfer to a CSU school to finish their bachelor’s degrees. A report from the Legislative Analyst’s Office finds many popular majors are covered in the program.

But the LAO's Jason Constantouros says students are often confused about the transfer process. He says better marketing could help solve the problem.

"We think efforts that focus tools and resources towards high school and community college counselors could be an effective way to make students aware of the transfer process," he says. 

The LAO says it’s too soon to determine whether the four-year old program is effective at speeding transfers and helping students earn a bachelor’s degree.
