Gap years

Interested in taking a gap year after graduation?

The Gap Year Association is a great place to begin!  Be sure to come up with a plan that is purposeful and thoughtful.  

A combination of volunteering, a job, an internship, classes, or learning a new skill (a new language, a musical instrument) could be an excellent way for you to pass your time before returning to college in August 2021!  

Note that if you take even one class at a community college, four-year colleges might consider you to be a transfer student instead of a first-year!  So if you were admitted to a four-year and are deferring your start for a year, be sure (get it in writing from the Office of Admissions!) that your college permits that!  And if you will be applying to four-year colleges for entry in Fall 2021, being admitted to many of them as a transfer student can be more difficult than if you were a regular first-year applicant (though for the UC's, the TAG program can make it easier!).  

Class of 2020, COVID-19 Assistance

Hello, Seniors/Class of 2020! 

Congratulations on your graduation!  We already miss you, and look forward to seeing you visit us again!  Given the unique circumstances with COVID-19 and its uncertain effects on the future, we thought it would be helpful for you to have your own page on our website, after you graduate.  Here, you will find information to help you with your transition to your post-TL plans.  College, jobs, apprenticeships, the military, volunteering, gap matter what you have in mind, we hope that this will help you in the months ahead, no matter where you are or what you are doing.

< - - For volunteering opportunities, click on the "Volunteering" link to your left.  

< - - For jobs, apprenticeships, and the military, click on the "Jobs & Careers" link to the left

Sonoma State's application for Spring 2021 admission is open!  You can apply through September 15.  To apply, click here!

As always, if you have any questions, please contact your TL counselor, or Brad Ward, the CCC's college counselor ( We are here for you, and look forward to helping you if you need it in the months and years ahead!


Your final TL transcript will be sent to the college you are attending, provided you have notified us where you are going!  To request that your final transcript is sent to the college/university you plan to attend, complete and submit this form.
