Transfer Credits to Another Institution

Transfer Credits to another institution by ordering official transcripts from Enrollment Services. 

Transfer Equivalency Guides

Equivalency guides are created to help students transfer institutions. They are a great tool to see how courses and credits can transfer to a specific university. The guides below can also indicate what requirements those courses meet. While not all universities have transfer guides available, here are online guides from schools that Tacoma Community College students frequently transfer to that will assist you.

Transfer guides are maintained by the universities, and TCC cannot guarantee the accuracy of these guides. Please check with your intended transfer school for the most up-to-date information.

Transfer Agreements Between TCC and Universities 

The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) site will provide you with information regarding how a Tacoma Community College degree will transfer to a university. Review the Intercollege Relations Commission handbook to locate your intended university. The handbook will list any additional requirements to a transfer degree based on the institution. Once admitted to a bachelor's degree program, students who complete these transfer degrees can generally expect 90 transferrable quarter credits and Junior class standing. 

Students who want to transfer should talk to academic advisors at both schools.
