 B U S T I N G Debunking the Myths About Transferring Credits
When community and technical college students transfer to a four-year institution, they bring a variety of perspectives to their new colleges and universities including life experiences, academic achievements, and diverse perspectives. But for some, transferring from a community or technical college can sound like an intimidating process. Students might find themselves asking: Will my credits transfer? Will I graduate in four years? Will transferring be perceived as a negative thing on my future resume?
To dispel some common transfer myths, we asked three former LWTech students, who have transferred from LWTech to a four-year institution, about their transfer experience.
Myth: My credits won’t transfer.
False. All degrees, whether DTA/MRP or AAS-T, can fulfill transfer requirements at multiple institutions thanks to the articulation transfer agreements with in-state colleges
and universities.
“The faculty at LWTech have worked really hard—especially in the math and engineering department – to make sure classes would transfer easily at universities like the University
of Washington,” said Taylour Mills, LWTech Engineering Transfer alumna.
