The Transfer Opportunity Program at Orange Coast College seeks to increase the pool of eligible underrepresented students and close the gap between minority and majority transfer students. TOP is designed to assist historically underrepresented students transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The primary goal of the program is to retain these students and increase the probability of their transfer. Through the program, these students are provided with support services including a college success course, information workshops, personal advisement and counseling, tutoring and group study sessions.
