This program is a Connecticut State Colleges & Universities Transfer Ticket!
Transfer Tickets are degree programs providing pathways for community college students to complete degree programs that transfer to one of the regional Connecticut State Universities and Charter Oak State College without losing any credits or being required to take extra credits in order to complete a bachelor’s degree in that same discipline. You will be able to transfer, apply to competitive admissions majors, and complete your BA/BS degree in the same time and with the same course requirements as students who start at a CSU or COSC.

With this degree, you will be able to transfer to the following majors. Follow this link for important information about when and how to apply for transfer to a State University or Charter Oak State College.
