HACC has worked with many institutions in establishing practical articulations and dual admission agreements to ensure successful student transfers. These agreements will help determine what HACC credits align with their majors and programs, promoting a timely and efficient transfer. Click on the following links to learn more about our specific agreements and about why you should complete your associate's degree at HACC.

Transfer Services' FAQs
Your HACC courses must meet your transfer institution's requirements. To plan a successful transfer, you should:
- Select your specific transfer college as soon as possible.
- Choose a transfer curriculum.
- Work with your advisor to select required transfer courses.
- Review HACC's transfer information. This includes transfer checksheets, comprehensive transfer notebooks, course equivalencies, transfer agreements, college directories and catalogs.
You can transfer at any time; however, consider completing your degree at HACC first. Transferring with an associate degree provides advance standing at a 4-year institution and also makes it more likely that you will be successful in your quest for a baccalaureate degree. Remember that before transferring, you must apply to and be accepted at the 4-year destination.
Your transfer institution may not accept the transfer credits that HACC did. HACC's transfer credit decisions do not reflect the decision of any other institution.
You will need to send official transcripts when you apply for transfer. These transcripts must include all coursework from schools you previously attended.
A dual-admission agreement is a cooperative partnership between HACC and a four-year college or university. It is for students interested in pursuing a bachelor degree. This agreement will:
- Facilitate your admission process
- Transfer your associate degree credits into a bachelor degree program
- Help ensure you do not lose any time or money
We have over 10 colleges and universities you can choose from for a dual-admission agreement.
Articulation agreements determine how credit is transferred into HACC or another institution.
