College Transfer

Transfer Degrees

These degrees are designed to be equivalent to the first 2 years of a 4-year bachelor’s degree, allowing students to complete 2 years at the community college and then transfer to a university and typically complete their degree in another 2 years.

International Transfer Admission Guarantee

North Seattle College offers Transfer Admission Guarantee, at the time of admission, from our partner institutions. When you are accepted to NSC you will receive both an admission letter from NSC and a Transfer Admission Guarantee from the university you have selected. Please indicate on your application form from which university you would like to receive conditional acceptance. The IP staff will send you acceptance material from NSC and the university of your choice. 

Transfer Degrees

The AA, AB and General AS degrees are Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) degrees. This means that most Washington state 4-year colleges agree to accept all 90 credits from your degree for transfer, and you may be able to transfer with junior status, depending on whether you have also met prerequisites for your major. Some colleges and universities will also consider most or all of your general education requirements to be met if you complete a DTA degree.

The DTA does not guarantee you admission to a university but, in some cases, may give you priority over other transfer students without a degree, provided all college/university admission requirements are met.

University Transfer

When you begin your transfer program studies at NSC, you will work closely with academic advisors to develop a personalized transfer plan. Advisors provide guidance to help you successfully transition from NSC to the university of your choice. They will help you design a course schedule (depending on your major) to complete an Associate degree and help you with university applications, admission requirements and program information.
