Transfer Guide Resources

Using Transfer Guides

To create an effective transfer plan using the Transfer Guides, students should:

  • Work with an academic advisor at the community college and connect with the university contact listed on each Transfer Guide as questions arise.
  • Ensure they are using the most up-to-date Transfer Guide by reviewing the academic year and revision date published on each Transfer Guide (Transfer Guides are updated annually)

Note: Some information on the Transfer Guides may not apply to students transferring prior to associate degree completion and/or dual-enrolled high school students. These students are encouraged to speak with their community college advisor and intended university for more information and guidance on NCCC course selection.

Each Transfer Guide provides important transfer information, including:

  • University and major-specific admissions requirements;
  • NCCC course recommendations aligned with associate degree requirements at the community college and major requirements at the university;
  • Course equivalency information; and
  • Remaining bachelor’s degree requirements that will be completed after transferring at the university.

All NCCC course recommendations found on the Transfer Guides have been labeled to indicate the “University Requirement Fulfilled” by the recommended course:

University Requirement Fulfilled Label  
General Education Course meets a General Education requirement at the university.
Required Course Critical course or prerequisite that is required for major/university curriculum and should be taken at community college prior to transferring. If not taken prior to transferring, it could impact student’s admission directly into major, access to other major courses at the university, and/or the time needed to complete the bachelor’s degree.
Required for Admission to University Transfer admissions requirement for the university (not major).
Suggested Course Course could fulfill a major/university requirement and is a good option if available at CC but does not need to be taken prior to transferring. Course can be taken upon transferring without impact on the bachelor’s degree completion timeline.
Elective Transfers as elective credit or applies toward the elective portion of the bachelor’s degree at university.
General Transfer Credit Transferable course awarding credit but does not fulfill any requirements within a bachelor’s degree program.
