Tips for successfully transferring your Maricopa Community College credits to a University


I want to transfer. Wha t do I need to do?

If

you know that you will transfer to a university, but you do not know what your major will be, it’s best to begin with the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC). AGEC is a 35-semester-credit general education program of study. Completion of the AGEC guarantees you will be admitted to any of the Arizona state public universities. Meet with an academic advisor to determine which AGEC is appropriate for your degree or program.
