Resources for Undocumented Students

The Chaffey College Transfer Center is dedicated to helping ALL students successfully transfer to a four-year college or university. Our mission is to ensure your transition is successful and we will provide you with the tools and empowerment to make this possible.

Statement from Superintendent/President Dr. Henry Shannon

"At Chaffey College, we stand behind the words of California Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz that the decision to end DACA is 'a heartless and senseless decision that goes against American ideals and basic human decency.' The 800,000 lives affected by this decision are people who are law-abiding, educated and fluent in English. They serve in our military, teach in our classrooms and are the doctors, lawyers, scientists and leaders needed to continue building this strong nation. All of them were brought to this country as children and see this nation as their home.”
