Academic transfer programs allow students to complete the first two years of a four year education, followed by transfer to a four year college or university to pursue one's bachelor degree. Transfer to a public Texas four year postsecondary institution is made easier through agreements in place with certain schools. Students wishing to transfer to a private or out of state school should meet with a counselor to outline a curriculum that best meet that school's transfer requirements.
