Transfer FAQ's

Transferring Within Arizona

  • How do I know my credits will transfer?
  • Will I lose credits when I transfer?
  • How do I know what is required for my major?
  • Are the requirements for a business degree the same for all three state universities?

In Arizona answering these questions is easy. There are three public universities in Arizona:

  • Arizona State University
  • Northern Arizona University
  • The University of Arizona

The public community colleges and universities have a statewide transfer policy which specifies how courses transfer and apply. That means that you can select courses to meet university requirements even if you haven’t finalized your decision about your major or university. The Arizona Transfer Model includes the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC), transfer pathways, and common courses. If you are planning to transfer to a private university in Arizona or in another state, your transfer plan may still include completing an AGEC and/or an associate's degree. Ask your advisor. The Arizona Transfer Model includes the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC), transfer pathways, and common courses.

The Transfer Center’s goal is to help you plan your transfer to the university so it is our intent to offer you the information and tools you need to make that process possible. Here’s how we can help:

  • Transfer Information Sessions: These are designed to provide information on all-things-transfer! Topics for discussion include: how to make that transition from PC to the university, workshops on selecting majors, applying to the university and more! View our monthly calendar of events flyer.
  • Meet University Representatives at PC: Every semester, we welcome university representatives to our campus to meet with students individually to answer questions with transfer planning, admissions, degree information, etc. They include many of our in-state and out-of-state university partners. The Transfer Center hosts a University Transfer fair every semester (Fall & Spring).  Meet with our University Transfer partners (typically we have over 15 in attendance) to learn more about transfer admissions, scholarships and much more.  Contact the University Transfer Center for additional information.
  • Computer access: Visit with the Advisement and Transfer Center to take advantage of the center’s laptop to research colleges and scholarships, and to complete the application online. Students can seek on-site guidance from the transfer coordinator if there are questions on the application.
  • Library of University Brochures: We have many college printed materials such as catalogs, degree information, transfer magazines and more! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, ask for it — we may have the information you need..
