1. You can start your journey toward successful transfer by checking out possible schools and their requirements by consulting your academic advisor.             

2. As you complete more courses, visit schools and ask questions.  Attend Transfer Fairs.  Attend Transfer Workshops.

3. As you near graduation or the time you have chosen for transfer, submit your application by the deadline.

Community Days -- University Campus Visits

Representatives from local and state-wide colleges and universities regularly visit Northwest Vista College to provide students the opportunity to discuss transfer admissions and requirements, financial aid and scholarships, and to answer questions.  Check out the roster for monthly campus visitors on CaTS Calendar of Events.

Advisor On Campus (AOC)

Advisors from partnering universities are available on campus by appointment for transfer planning. Call or stop by to set up appointment. Check to see if walk-in advising is available.

Reverse Transfer Degree

Although it is highly recommended that you complete your associate degree, there are times that transferring may be your best plan. You can still get your associate degree from NVC if you have successfully completed a minimum 15 hours at NVC and then send back to NVC official transcripts for evaluation. You will be awarded a degree when you have completed the required courses totaling 60 hours. Earning your associate degree gives you more opportunity while you are completing your bachelor’s degree.
