We want to make the transition as smooth as possible. Work with our transfer coordinator as soon as you enroll at a community college. We will help you to make sure you are enrolling in the correct classes even before you are ready to transfer to UCM!

Use our transfer guides to your advantage!  UCM has a number of resources available to you to make your transition as easy as possible. Use our transfer guides along with our academic advisors and transfer coordinator to make sure you are enrolling in the right classes at your community college. Also, you can check our database of thousands of classes to check on an equivalency. Let us help make your transfer to UCM great!

  • 30 hours overall
  • 20 upper-level hours (3000/4000 level courses)
