Transfer Information



MCC provides support to students who desire to transfer community college credit to four-year colleges and universities through:

  • Transfer/articulation agreements with many four-year institutions
  • Access to the most up-to-date course by course transfer information
  • General education and program transfer guides

Additionally, MCC has many Associate-to-Bachelor (A-to-B) Agreements with area four-year institutions. These agreements allow MCC students to transfer their entire associate degree toward a four-year college degree. In most instances, students start as a junior at the transfer institution.

Visit the Transfer/Articulation website at mccneb.edu/articulation for a complete list of institutions that MCC currently has agreements with as well as links to course-by-course transfer information.

Many institutions accept MCC courses for credit, but formal agreements have not yet been established. For information about transferring to an institution not included on this list, students should contact the institution to which they wish to transfer.

Students planning to transfer should work closely with a MCC advisor and with an advisor at the transfer institution to ensure a smooth transfer.

Transcript Request Information

Upon completion of MCC courses, a transferring student must request that an official transcript be sent to the institution. Transcript requests may be submitted at mccneb.edu/Prospective-Students/Resources/Student-Services-SOS/Records/Transcript-Request.aspx or through the student portal (My Way), which is available to current students. Students have the option of requesting an electronic transcript or a paper transcript.

Electronic transcripts are processed within one to two business days. Paper transcripts are processed within five to seven days. Please allow additional processing time during peak times, such as graduation, end of a quarter, etc.

Transfer Tips

  • Successful transfer of credit(s) depends upon the major declared at the four-year institution. For example, courses that may successfully transfer into a psychology major may not transfer into an accounting major.
  • The college or university receiving transfer courses makes the decision regarding award of transfer credit. Acceptance of credit is always up to the receiving institution.
  • Developmental courses (courses below the 1000-level) are generally not transferable. In general, only courses in which students earn a C or higher can transfer for credit. Courses where D’s or F’s are earned are not usually transferable.
  • Potential transfer students should work with both an academic advisor from MCC and from the four-year institution they plan to attend to ensure a smooth transfer.
  • Quarter hours earned at MCC convert to semester hours at a ratio of 3.0 quarter hours to 2.0 semester hours. For example, a 4.5 quarter hour class transfers as 3.0 semester hours.
