Start your Adventure at UCC

Heading to a university? UCC can help!

Watch the "Transfer Education" video to get a quick idea of what it's all about.

Is your goal to go to a university?

UCC is a great place to start if your ultimate goal is to move on to a university to earn an advanced degree. UCC can save you a lot of money, enhance your study skills, and help you secure scholarships before you transfer. With two years of full-time study, you can earn an Associate degree from UCC and enter a university as a Junior, on your way to a 4-year degree (Bachelor's).

Advanced degrees (Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D.) can help you start your career at a higher level. If you feel like you have reached a plateau in your current job, an advanced degree can help you move further. Plus, advanced degrees are sometimes a requirement to get to the entry level in advanced or highly technical careers as in the case of a doctor, architect, and research scientist.

To be sure that an advanced degree is right for you, please meet with a career coach to discuss your education and career goals. Of course, feel free to learn about your options for a transfer degree on your own by exploring the information below.
