I need to transfer from my cc to a uc as fast as I can

I am a bioengineering major and looking to transfer to ucr and I would like some advice on how to transfer as soon as possible I am 18 and I am just scared of spending like 4 years here and going to a UC old. Thanks.

    UCR like all UC's only accept Junior level transfers, 60 semester/90 quarter units. If you have a significant # of AP credits, you could do it sooner. I suggest you look into the TAG program: http://admissions.ucr.edu/Home/transfer

    You'll likely need to spend at least 2 years in Community College before transferring since you intend on transferring as a Bioengineering major, unless you have AP credit in Bio, Chem, Physics, and/or Math. If you plan out your schedule carefully with a counselor then you should be able to transfer in 2 years.

    I have made a plan with my counselor and I will be ready to transfer at 21 do you guys think that is too old?

    There is no such thing as "too old." People get their degrees at all ages. The most important thing is to keep working toward finishing. The worst thing to do is to decide you're "too old" at 21 to continue on with college and then find yourself 45-years-old wishing you had finished and figuring out how to get a degree with kids, a mortgage, etc.

    Most people who go to CC don't even graduate within 2 years, like only 30-40% do (this statistic includes those in vocational programs): I learned that when I started my first semester at MiraCosta College.

    I honestly don't consider 21 that "old" when the average student is typically 21-22 when they graduate college (assuming they don't graduate early or don't complete their degree within 4 years).
