Transfer Options for GCC Students

Gateway is committed to assisting students in obtaining their educational goals. Should those goals include transferring an associate's degree to a four-year institution, students may transfer to any college or university they choose. Students may have a lot of questions, such as whether their courses will transfer or whether they can change majors. If students have questions or are unsure of where to transfer for their bachelor's degree, they should check out the GCC Transfer Out Guide and meet with an academic advisor in the GCC Counseling and Student Success Center to develop a transfer plan.

Transfer Advising and Information

The Counseling and Student Success Center provides information and activities about transferring. To facilitate this process you must meet with a professional counselor who is experienced in options and resources available to you. To speak to a counselor, contact the Counseling and Student Success Center.

In order to effectively manage your transfer, the following is recommended:

Meet with a counselor/program coordinator at least, once per academic semester, to make sure that you are fulfilling major requirements and enrolling in courses transferable to your selected college/university.
Attend an open house or visit the target university/college; visit the college's/university's website and housing options before applying for admission. Students can call the admissions office at the receiving college and schedule a campus tour.
