For more information please see the Academic Transfer and General Education Program Overview. 

The Associate of Arts degree is for students who plan to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at Central Community College before transferring to a four-year college or university. Central Community College works closely with other colleges to facilitate the acceptance of credits. As a result, our students may transfer up to 66 credit hours. The Associate of Arts degree requires 60 semester hours of credit. Most transfer institutions will not accept grades below a “C” for transfer.  Students are encouraged to meet with their adviser to determine a program of transfer courses which meet the receiving institution’s requirements from the following selected fields of study.

Nebraska Transfer Initiative

The Nebraska Transfer Initiative began in 1995 as a group of general education transfer courses which were articulated among the six Nebraska community colleges.  When possible, these courses share the same alpha, number, and course content.  Recently the Nebraska Transfer Initiative has been expanded to include some non-general education courses which can be used as transfer electives.  Nineteen Nebraska transfer institutions participate in this articulation process.
