Transfer Timeline

Get an Early Start!

One of the main reasons for early transfer plans is to make sure that degree programs and curriculum are met for your future educational plans. When you wait until the last semester, this limits your choices and options. This timeline will help you stay on track with your transfer plan.
First Semester – 0 to 15 credits

  • The transfer process should start your first semester. Start researching four year schools that will best fit you.
  • Start thinking about a major. This is usually the hardest task to face. Make an appointment to see a Career Counselor so that you can explore options.  Research the schools that you are interested in to see they have an articulation agreement with UACCB.
  • Attend Transfer Fairs. Meet with college reps and ask them questions.
  • Visit the Transfer Center.
  • It is not too early to start your transfer plan.

Second Semester - 16 to 30 credits

  • Get on mailing lists. When you visit Transfer fairs sign up for college catalogs. Once you are on their mailing list, you will receive invitations to open houses, information about financial aid, scholarships and brochures about the specific major you are interested in.
  • Visit the Transfer Center.
  • Start exploring scholarship opportunities.

Third Semester - 31 to 45 credits

  • Visit the Transfer Center.
  • Apply for admissions to at least three four year colleges. Review application and all deadlines. Start asking your professors for recommendations.
  • Request your transcripts to be mailed to four colleges that you are interested in.

Fourth Semester - 46 to 60 credits

  • Attend Transfer Fairs and gather information on four year colleges. The Transfer Fairs are held at UACCB in October for fall semester and March in the spring semester.
  • Apply for financial aid.
  • Once you receive letters of acceptance, if you have not already done so, schedule a visit.
  • Visit the Transfer Center and review all your credit evaluations.
  • Read all your mail and emails. You do not want to miss out on any opportunities.
