Transfer Process

There are a number of steps that you must take in order to remain on track and ensure a successful transfer:


Choose Your Academic Pathway

  • The earlier you decide on a pathway and identify a transfer institution, the more likely you will be to graduate on time, save money, and transfer successfully. You will also become better aware of prerequisites and required transfer courses, have more time to research institutions and scholarships, and be more likely to join student organizations and clubs that match your interest areas.

Develop My Academic Plan (MAP)

  • Once you decide on an academic pathway, you will be able to develop a term-by-term educational plan for your entire program. This is called My Academic Plan. Your MAP should combine general education requirements with major course requirements. MAPs can be completed with the assistance of your Academic and Career Advisor as well as your Coach and Mentor.


Check your Degree Audit and meet with your Academic and Career Advisor or your Coach and Mentor regularly

  • Check your Degree Audit regularly to keep track of your academic progress and program requirements. Visit an Academic & Career Advisor on a regular bases to learn about new academic policies and to make sure that you take the required courses and meet other criteria for entry into your transfer institution and program of choice.
