Career Transfer Center

Career/Transfer Center

The Career Center, located within the Manzanita Building adjacent to the Counseling area, offers materials and services to assist students with career information. The Center maintains a variety of resources including occupational publications, newsletters, college catalogs, and Eureka, a computerized vocational/educational information system.

The Transfer Center has many resource materials available to help facilitate the transition from Columbia College to other 2 and 4-year colleges and universities for completion of your educational goals. The Center houses catalogs from all California public schools as well as many from private and out-of-state schools. There are numerous videos and pamphlets available to enhance students' college research, as well as computers with Eureka software and Internet access. ASSIST provides direct access to articulation agreements with other colleges indicating which courses taken at Columbia are comparable with specific courses at the transfer school of choice.
