Planning for your University Transfer

1. Visit with the Completion Center’s Career & Employment Services staff to determine a likely career and major.

2. Determine the best degree plan for you and create a timeline to get you to graduation, transferred to a university, and or a job in the workforce.

Eastfield College offers degrees designed for academic transfer, degrees intended to send you into the workforce, and certificates that can give you an extra credential for a job.

Here is the breakdown of degrees:

  • Associate in Arts/Associate in Sciences degrees (A.A./A.S.) for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university
  • Associate of Applied Sciences degrees (A.A.S.) for students who want to prepare for a specific career or technical field
  • Certificate programs – Shorter programs designed for workforce

In addition to the A.A/A.S, Eastfield College offers emphasis and field of study degrees. These are designed to transfer as well; however, these degrees require specific courses including electives.

3. Meet with your Academic Advisor

Once you have made an informed decision on possible career choices and a program of study, you should schedule a meeting with an academic advisor to plan out a schedule for your time at Eastfield College. Your academic advisor is an important partner who can help you explore college majors, select the right degree plan to meet your needs and choose courses that will transfer.

4. Research colleges and universities.

About a year before you plan to transfer (or when you're within 24 credit hours of completing your degree), you'll need to begin finding answers to some important questions, such as:

• What school is right for me?
• Which schools offer my major?
• How will I pay for it?

5. Complete the application process on time.

Usually you'll need to submit your applications for scholarships, financial aid and admission to your top choices by a certain deadline. Every institution has different deadline dates, so be sure to review your top choices so you can give yourself plenty of time to apply. We have compiled our top 15 most transferred to institutions for you to compare dates, cost, requirements, and more.
