University Transfer Center

The University Transfer Center [UTC] is here to assist you on your journey to the four-year university!  Although course planning for transfer happens with your assigned Academic Counselor,  we provide the tools for you to determine the best transfer strategy.  We are the point place for University Representatives to distribute information and provide campus appointments to best inform your application list. Knowing where you want to apply and in which majors is key to creating the most streamlined plan.  Researching your transfer institution will be your top priority.  

We are also here to guide you through the application process.  It can seem overwhelming with the many steps between submitting your application and receiving a decision but we can help.  With workshops and personal advising you can successfully complete the process!

Questions regarding general transfer and applicatoin assistance throughout the year can be sent to To meet with our Transfer Advisor please use Starfish by finding University Transfer Center in "Other Services" then "Transfer Advisor".   

You may also be interested in joining our programs to assist you from your first day here.  Learn more by exploring the tab "Transfer Academy" and "Transfer Achievement Program" bellow.  Both provide instructions on how to join by expanding the plus sign on the top bar.
