Transfer Procedures

Procedures for applying to a four-year college or university:

Students are advised to get an unofficial graduation audit by the Counseling and Student Success Center at GCC to make sure they meet program requirements.
Students are encouraged to apply on‐line, once they have selected their four-year college/university:

  • Several institutions use the Common Application while others use their own admissions application.
Students should fill out a transcript request form through myCommnet in order to have their transcript sent to the receiving college/university.
Students should submit an application to the Undergraduate Admissions office at their chosen college/university or apply on‐line. Deadlines must be met to ensure successful transfer.

Once your admissions application and transcript are received by your university of choice, a credit evaluation process will take place in order to determine if you meet the college’s general education requirements, major and elective requirements. The receiving college will make a determination at their discretion of what courses are acceptable for transfer. Most universities require grades of "C‐" or better.

Fall admissions (planning to start in September): Apply in December or January.

Spring admissions (planning to start in January): Apply in August or September.

Students who want to apply for financial aid must file for FAFSA via the web at Students must file by the priority date of their chosen university/college.
