What is a Transfer Pathway?

A transfer pathway represents a typical course schedule/sequence for a student planning to complete the A.A. degree within two years, then transfer and major in a specific discipline. A transfer pathway is not institution-specific. 

It is important to understand that the pathway provided in the adjacent tab is just one possible combination of classes by which to complete an A.A. and prepare for transfer in your chosen area of study. Other course combinations and sequences can work, too. It is strongly recommended that students work directly and frequently with a COD academic counselor/advisor, a COD faculty advisor, and academic counselors/advisors at potential transfer schools, to develop and execute a plan that works best for them.

General Education Requirements

For general education requirements for the A.A. degree, please visit the A.A. degree catalog page.

Please note that the A.A. and A.S. Degrees currently require a minimum of 64 hours for completion. If the transfer pathway listed above has fewer than 64 hours listed, students will need to take additional coursework to reach that minimum. Students should consult with a faculty or program advisor to discuss their options.
