ARC Transfer Pathway Program

Funded by the Department of Education (DOE), the ARC (Access, Relevance and Community) Program is a Title 3 Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) grant. The ARC Program is focused on increasing access, enrollment and transfer for underserved Asian and Pacific Islander American, low-income students and first-generation college students.

Empowering Transfer

Through a collaboration between Cañada College, College of San Mateo, Skyline College and the SFSU College of Ethnic Studies Asian American Studies (AAS) department, the ARC Transfer Pathway Program will support students in their transfer pathway to San Francisco State University through implementing an array of workshops and activities focused on student belonging, community, and transfer readiness.
