Colleges That Accept Community College Credits
If you’re transferring from a community college to a four-year university, there’s a good chance that your credits will be accepted. It all depends on the school and what they offer in their admissions process. Here are some of the most difficult schools to get into as well as colleges with transfer policies that make it easier for students to study there:
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
You can transfer course credits from community college to MIT.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has a transfer credit policy that lists the courses that are acceptable for transfer, which include:
- Biology (with lab) (MIT Course 4.01 or above; MD 108 or above; 2 years of science with lab is recommended).
- Calculus I through IV (Math 16a, 16b, 17a, 17b, 18a/18b). You must take Math 21a-c if your community college does not offer Math 16a-c.
- Chemistry I and II with labs (Chemistry 1A/1AL and 1B/1BL). You must take Chemistry 3A/3AL and 3B/3BL if your community college does not offer Chem 1A/1AL & B/B L
California State University System
The California State University system is a great option for students who want to transfer from community college to a four-year university. The CSU system has 23 campuses, which offer bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
The CSU system has a transfer agreement with community colleges, so if you enroll at a California community college, you can apply to one of their campuses without taking the SAT or ACT exam (formally known as the ASSET). This allows you to save money on testing fees and gives you extra time for other important things like studying for your classes!
In addition, many of these universities also have an agreement with UC Berkeley so that credits from your first two years of school may be transferred into a bachelor’s degree program at one of their campuses.
University of Minnesota – Twin Cities
University of Minnesota – Twin Cities
The University of Minnesota – Twin Cities accepts up to 90 credits from community colleges, 60 credits from a four-year college or university, and general education courses accepted by your four-year institution. In addition to this, transfer students may be eligible for credit for certain general education courses that were completed at another institution. If you are currently enrolled in the College of Education at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and plan on transferring there afterward (or vice versa), it’s worth checking with advisers about whether any additional community college credits will count toward graduation requirements in either program.
University of Washington
University of Washington
Transfer credits from community colleges are accepted by the University of Washington. The university is located in Seattle, WA and is home to several colleges and schools. Among these are the College of Arts & Sciences, the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, Nursing (School of Nursing), Social Work (School of Social Work), and Business Administration (Foster School). It is also one of only three public universities with a medical school: University of Washington Medical Center ranked as one of America’s top hospitals by US News & World Report. In addition to its top academic programs, UW boasts an impressive array of research facilities including three large-scale supercomputers that make up part of what they call the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory—one was ranked as best overall among academic institutions worldwide.
Oregon State University
Oregon State University is a public university in Corvallis, Oregon. It was founded in 1868 and became the state’s land-grant institution in 1872.
Oregon State University accepts transfer credits from community colleges. Students who have already completed an Associate degree at a community college may be eligible to transfer some of those courses as electives or to fulfill general education requirements. See the Oregon State admissions page for details about applying as a transfer student.
Oregon State University has a transfer credit equivalency system that lists how many community college credits are equivalent to each of its own courses. The equivalency list will help you determine how many credit hours you need before transferring so that you can plan your course schedule accordingly without having to take unnecessary classes at OSU before graduating with your bachelor’s degree!
University of Florida
University of Florida (UF)
The University of Florida (UF) is a public university that offers a variety of transfer options in order to make it easier for students who have already earned degrees at community colleges. In fact, UF has agreements with more than 40 different community colleges across the country. This makes it possible for students to earn their bachelor’s degree from UF without needing to take extra classes when they transfer into the university’s program.
You can also choose from a number of other types of transfers, depending on your situation:
- Academic Transfer Program – This program allows you to start at UF as an undergrad and then work towards your master’s degree by taking some upper-level courses during your final 2 years there. You can also apply credits from other schools toward this program while still working toward your undergraduate degree at UF.
Florida State University
If you’re looking to transfer from a Florida community college and are not sure how many credits will transfer to Florida State University, the answer is up to 90.
FSU has a transfer credit policy that allows students who have completed an associate’s degree at a Florida community college to transfer up to 90 credits toward their bachelor’s degree. For example, if you earned an A.A. or A.S., your transcript would show those degrees, but it would also include any applicable FSU equivalencies for courses taken at the community college level (they’ll be listed as “AA” or “AS”). This way, when it comes time for official admission into the university and registration for your baccalaureate program of choice, all potential coursework will already have been evaluated and graded by both institutions as if they were done in-person on campus—meaning no more headaches over whether or not your online courses will count toward graduation!
FSU accepts credit transfers from other states’ community colleges as well—but only if they meet certain criteria: The school must be regionally accredited (if it’s not regionally accredited then there needs to be another means of showing accreditation), all coursework must be less than five years old when applying for admission into FSU’s main campus or one of its satellite locations/campuses (except where noted below), certain types of programs may require additional testing requirements before acceptance into certain majors such as nursing or psychology/psychiatry majors where additional testing may be required during freshman year due to high demand in these areas within our student population
