Students should meet with a counselor to identify the college they plan to attend after CCAC, and the major they intend to pursue. Counselors assist students by helping select courses that are transferable to four-year colleges and universities. CCAC has articulation agreements with a variety of institutions to ensure the transferability of CCAC courses. Click here to learn more!
