  2. Choose as early as possible your transfer institution and your intended major.
  3. Make use of ARTSYS, a computerized method of determining the transferability of your courses.
  4. Contact your intended transfer institution to determine application and admissions procedures and deadlines.
  5. Be aware that courses and program requirements may change. Be sure to consult frequently with an advisor or your CCBC program coordinator.
