GCC Transfer Pathway Programs

These specialized programs are designed for first-time, full-time students who know what bachelor’s degree they want and from what four-year institution. Accepted students will be enrolled in a program at GCC that lines up with the 4-year program they are pursuing and will follow a predetermined set of courses. Students will work closely with Transfer Services at GCC to ensure the correct courses are being taken. Upon earning an associate's degree at GCC, the student begins immediately at the baccalaureate degree granting institution with full junior status (provided certain academic standards are fulfilled at both GCC and the 4-year institution).

Students must apply using the GCC Alternative Transfer Pathways Program Application.
