​University Tours

Shasta College students have the opportunity to visit various 4-year colleges and universities through our university tours. These trips are typically one-day in length, leaving early in the morning and returning early evening the same day. Transportation is provided by Shasta College bus. These tours typically include an admissions presentation, a financial aid presentation, a tour of the campus, and a question-and-answer session. These trips are free for Shasta College students. Students can sign up in the Transfer Center to attend these trips. Please sign up no later than the deadline to reserve your seat, as these trips do 
fill up.

All field trips for Spring 2017 have concluded. 
Please check back in the August for the field trips that will be taking place in Fall 2017.​

 ​​Virtual​ Tours​

Virtual tour websites typically feature 360° x 360° virtual campus tours of hundreds of college campuses. Each campus tour allows you to see what college life is really like through unique panoramic photographs. If you like what you see you should visit the colleges’ website and see if they have your major. Then make an appointment with a Shasta College counselor to discuss the transfer process.
