Transfer Programs

Transfer degree programs allow you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree prior to transferring to a four-year college or university. Some students transfer to a four-year institution after earning an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree, while others choose to transfer after completing a set number of transferable credits without earning a degree.
