The COVID-19 pandemic has derailed many students’ plans, and perhaps you have struggled with what to do. If going to a four-year college or university is your goal, you’re in luck: FRCC has a specific University Transfer Track that will help you get where you want to go and save a lot of money while you’re at it.
One or Two Years Here, Then on Your Way to a Bachelor’s Degree
What is the University Transfer Track? It’s pretty simple: Complete your first and/or second year of college at FRCC, then transfer to any public college or university in Colorado—with full sophomore or junior status.
College is expensive, after all, and maybe you decided not to go off to your dream university because you didn’t feel safe or the “college experience” you want just isn’t available because of the pandemic. Or you want to go to college, but you’re paying your own way. University Transfer Track is a great fit in either scenario, offering many advantages:
- You’ll save $$$. FRCC tuition is less than half that of a four-year school. You can stay out of debt and get your general education courses done at FRCC, transferring to your school of choice later.
- Your credits are guaranteed to transfer. FRCC has agreements with every public four-year college/university in Colorado (and even a few private schools in Colorado and elsewhere) that guarantee your credits will be accepted for specific courses.
- You’ll be on your way in 2022. Get started at FRCC in the semester that starts January 2021 (online or on campus, depending on availability), continue in summer and fall 2021 semesters, earn 30 credits or more, and transfer to your school of choice. It’s that streamlined.
An Advisor Will Guide You
Your FRCC Pathways Advisor will work with you to select all your University Transfer Track courses. Advisors specialize in specific programs, so they’ll keep you on track – and if you have a major in mind already, they’ll put you on the correct path, especially if you’re transferring to a particular school.
Here, Your Education is Personal
FRCC’s average class size is 17 students. Our faculty all have master’s or doctoral degrees and care a lot about students’ success. The outcomes speak for themselves: FRCC is one of the top community colleges in the country for student outcomes when students transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
On top of that, we have over 20 years of experience in offering online courses – and are ranked ninth in the U.S. by College Consensus for online learning.
A Few Things to Remember:
- You can earn an associate degree for transfer first. Some students earn 60 credits and transfer into Colorado public four-year colleges and universities as juniors.
- Many but not all degrees at FRCC are transferrable. If transferring is your goal, it’s important to get on the University Transfer Track and work with a Pathways Advisor.
- Some courses transfer, but maybe not as the courses you intend. Although FRCC has many courses that are guaranteed to transfer into four-year degree programs, some courses transfer as electives (but don’t fulfill requirements to transfer somewhere as a sophomore). Again, an advisor can help you make sure you do things right.
