Information About Transferring
Published or Revised February 15, 2022
Transferring to a four-year institution is a goal of many PJC students. The Advising/Counseling Center offers services and information for students planning to transfer. Successful transfer requires careful planning that should begin as soon as possible in your college experience. Studies show students who complete an Associate Degree prior to transferring are more successful. PJC has articulation agreements with four-year colleges and universities to provide smoother transfer for students. Click here to see the list.
