How It Works
So what happens when you transfer? Your four-year college will look at the courses you took and the grades you earned at your two-year college and decide how much credit to give you. Each course is worth a certain number of credits, often three, and students need to earn enough credits, usually 120, to graduate.
Here are more transfer facts:
If enough of your courses transfer, you’ll start at the four-year college as a junior.
If you don’t get credit for some of your courses, you may need to take them again at the four-year college.
When you graduate from the four-year college, only that college’s name will appear on your bachelor’s degree.
