University Transfer Degree Information

Students should work closely with an academic advisor each semester to make certain you are enrolled in the correct courses for your degree program, especially if you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students are encouraged to begin a dialogue with their intended transfer schools as early as possible. Early coordination between TCC academic advisors and advisors from selected four-year institutions can streamline the transfer process. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she understands the program/admission/transfer requirements for the transfer school.
