STCC Transfer Programs

STCC's transfer programs* are specifically designed for students who plan to transfer to a 4-year college or university after earning an Associate Degree at STCC. The courses offered in these programs are generally those required to provide a broad educational background before beginning specialization in a major field of study.

*Although these are the primary transfer programs offered at STCC, students in other programs do have opportunities for continuing their education at the bachelor's level. Please consult with your program chairperson to learn more about specific transfer opportunities and agreements in your major.

Transfer Agreements
