HACC Students

Types of Transfer Agreements: Help to ensure you do not lose any time or money


Program-to-Program outlines what courses a student should take as part of an associate degree to transfer at the junior level in a specific major.

Core-to-Core allows students to transfer after completing their associate's degree, successfully fulfilling the four-year college's core education requirements.

General transfer and memo of understanding agreements allow students to transfer their entire degree providing all grades are at least a C to the four-year school. Students who do not earn an Associate degree will have their classes evaluated class-by-class.

Dual Admission is a transfer agreement formed with a specific school before 30 credits, which facilitates your admission process, access other school's services, and transfers your associate degree into a bachelor's degree program
