Start Here, Go Far with Transfer Majors

You may realize that you can take care of your gen-ed requirements before transferring to a four-year school; what you may not realize is that the possibilities don’t end there! If you are looking to earn your Bachelor’s degree, it’s smart to make community college the first step in your journey.  

Why Community College? 

Starting at a community college will set you up for long-term success. You will benefit from smaller class sizes and more individual attention from your instructors. Instead of sitting in a 300-person lecture hall, you will have the opportunity to get out from behind the desk and get hands-on with your coursework.  

And you will do all of this for a fraction of the cost of a four-year school.  

Will Your Credits Transfer?

You may be concerned that what you do at the community college level won’t transfer to the degree program of your choice. Don’t be. Thanks to articulation agreements with each of the state universities, your credits will transfer to the school of your choice. In other words, you can reap the benefits of a large university program while studying with class sizes comparable to the private colleges (without the price tag, of course!
