i need a plan for after city college?

I'm planning to go to city college but I wanted to know if there is anything to prep me for mechanical engineering or a way to get into that after city

Thank you comment icon Hi Aaron! Could you edit your question to include the full name of the college you are referring to? I assumed you might mean CCNY but I also see you are in California, so Professionals might be unsure what your question is asking. Thanks so much! 😄 Alexandra Carpenter, Admin

Hi Aaron,

Great to hear you're thinking of a STEM career and thinking ahead!

While I didn't go through the community college/junior college route, I did take a lot of courses at my local JC that transferred over to my 4 year institution (a UC), so some tips to consider:

1). Biggest issue/risk is not taking eligible courses, ergo, wasting time, money, and effort. So 1st thing to do is identify which courses at City College SF (or any JC) are eligible for transfer. You can use assist.org (https://assist.org/) to map which courses transfer
2). Second thing to do is identify which potential schools you would like to transfer to (whether a UC, CSU, out of state). Each school has its own requirements, with UC and CSU generally aligned with assist.org. Out of state schools are harder so you will likely have to contact admissions or the major itself (most majors have advisers you can contact) to see what courses are required to transfer and fulfill the major.
3). Third thing is to identify the major pre-reqs (since you're thinking mechanical engineering), which will likely be Calculus and Physics, and reading/writing composition (R&C) courses. Prioritize those to position yourself as a competitive candidate for transferring.
4). The last thing is to just execute and do your best in the courses. Stay in close contact with your local city college adviser and major advisers in your target schools to make sure requirements don't change.
