Before Starting your Personal Statement

Writing Your Personal Statement

The Transfer Center is dedicated to assisting students achieve Transfer by connecting and providing access to the necessary tools to make transfer to another college or university happen. 

We provide students connections to colleges through counseling appointments with our Transfer Counselors and College Representatives from various schools such as UC Davis, UC Berkeley, CSU East Bay, San Francisco State University and many more public, private, and out-of-state colleges and universities. We also provide students with workshops on how to research colleges and majors, how to apply, and how to prepare personal statements. And through our yearly events such as our Annual Transfer Day, which is held in the Fall semester, and our Transfer Fair, which is held in the Spring semesters, students can meet and speak with college representatives from various schools around the state and from out-of-state.

We are here to help Skyline College students accomplish their transfer related goals. And we work within the Mission of our college, which is "to empower and transform a global community of learners".

Skyline College. Your Dream. Your Goal. Your Future.
