Transfer Resources

Information to Help You Plan for Transfer

Use the resources on this page to identify transfer options and to plan a smooth transfer to your selected college or university.  

Typically, transfer is your goal if you are enrolled in one of the college’s transfer programs. However, an increasing number of institutions now also accept credits from an Associate in Applied Science degree. Learn how A.A.S. credits can transfer.

Transfer Guides to Specific Schools

Transfer Planning Guides for various colleges and universities are available online. They provide useful information including tuition, contact numbers and application deadlines.  Additional transfer guide resources include guaranteed admission agreements and articulation agreements with partner schools.

Reverse Transfer of Credit

For students who transfer before earning an associate degree, there may be an option to earn a degree after transferring.

Reverse Transfer of Credit is a process where academic credits for course work completed at a four year university are transferred back to your community college to satisfy associate degree requirements. Some students transfer into 4-year universities before completing an associate degree at a community college. Through Reverse Transfer, a student’s achievements are recognized with an associate degree after they have transferred to a 4-year school and have accumulated the credits needed to fulfill the 2-year degree program requirements. For more information meet with an academic success advisor in the Advising Center.

Benefits of Earning an Associate Degree (even after Transferring)

The associate degree is a marketable credential for your resume and an important milestone in your education. Employers value the associate degree as evidence of your commitment to expanding your knowledge and achieving your educational goals. The associate degree can make a difference in your long-term success:

  • An associate degree can provide better job opportunities while completing your bachelor degree.
  • The associate degree is the nation’s fastest growing work credential; employers recognize its value when recruiting and hiring.
  • Students who earn an associate degree are more likely to complete their bachelor degree.
  • There is no risk to you – even though you are applying the hours you have earned at your 4 year institution toward an associate degree at your community college, your hours earned at your 4 year institution will still apply toward your undergraduate degree.

Financial Aid and Transfer

Cost is, of course, an important factor in deciding on a transfer institution. Carefully consider all costs (tuition, room/board, meals, books, activity fees, parking fees, travel, etc.) and financial aid options.
