 Course Equivalency & Transfer Programs

The following course equivalency guides and articulation agreements are meant to serve as a guide for DMACC students in preparation for transfer from DMACC to another academic institution. However, these agreements are not intended to serve as a replacement for contact with a representative of that four-year college.

Admission requirements, degree requirements, and course equivalencies vary by college and can change at either the community college or the four-year college. Therefore, it is important for transfer students to remain in contact with the four-year college for the most current and accurate information that will impact transfer to that institution.

*DMACC counselors and advisors understand the importance of accurate transfer information and try to provide the most current information available. However, DMACC employees are not representatives of the four-year college and therefore cannot provide all information relevant to transfer to a particular institution.
