Planning to Transfer?

It is never to early to start transfer planning. If you are thinking about transferring, there are things you can do right now to insure a smooth transition:

  1. You can start your journey toward successful transfer by researching possible colleges/universities and their requirements.
  2. Visit colleges/universities; most have campus visit days throughout the semester.
  3. Attend NVC Transfer Fair and CaTS Transfer Workshops.
  4. Meet with your academic advisor to plan your coursework for your selected transfer institution.

Transfer Agreements

Transfer articulation agreements allow students to take their first and second year of coursework leading to a baccalaureate degree at Northwest Vista College, transfer credits earned to a participating four-year college or university and complete the remaining upper division coursework required for the Bachelor's Degree.

Transfer Advising Guides

Transfer Advising Guides were created to guide students on the courses they can take before they transfer. Please see the Advising Guides by University specific to your program to gain insight on course recommendations, program requirements and guidance on when we recommend you transfer.

Reverse Transfer Degree

Although it is highly recommended that you complete your associate degree, there are times that transferring prior to degree completion may be your plan. Students who transfer to a Texas public college or university prior to graduation have an opportunity to complete requirements to earn an associate degree awarded by one of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District. For students who transfer to most Texas universities, this is an automated system following consent on the ApplyTexas Admission Application. Students may also request a reverse transfer degree audit at any time by submitting a university transcript and visiting the college's Enrollment Services/Admissions and Records office.
