Transfer of Courses to Senior Colleges

The hours earned at North Central Texas College in academic courses are generally accepted by other accredited colleges and universities to (1) satisfy specific course requirements or (2) count as electives. Students who have gained proficiency through completion of course work from non-accredited institutions should consult the Vice President of Instruction regarding individual course evaluation.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year school, or other community college, should be aware that each school determines its own list of courses required for a particular kind of degree. Moreover, different colleges do not require all the same courses for the same major. Therefore, knowledge of the degree plan requirements at the institution to which the student plans to transfer is very important. Students can start to research these requirements by visiting the Counseling and Testing Transfer Guide webpage to access Transfer Guides for major universities, as well as Academic Pathways which outline the suggested courses you need to take for your intended college major.

NCTC counselors and advisors are familiar with course requirements at transfer colleges and will be glad to assist students in determining course equivalency and in choosing those courses which are appropriate to their educational objectives after they transfer.
