An Associate in Arts & Sciences degree completed at WCC allows students to transfer to a four-year university to complete their bachelor's degree. In this program, a student can work on their General University Requirements (GUR's) while completing the prerequisite classes necessary for their major at a university. WCC offers individualized transfer advising to prepare for a specific major at a U.S. 4-year institution.
From the first day that they arrive at Whatcom, international students work closely with their International Student Advisor to develop their academic plan. Throughout their education at Whatcom, international students are involved in quarterly academic advising to complete the necessary courses in preparing for their major when they transfer to a university.
Each quarter, students have the opportunity to attend a university transfer workshop. This workshop details the first steps toward successful university transfer. With early planning and our individualized support, students can successfully transfer anywhere across the United States.
Please view the University Transfer PowerPoint to learn more about planning your transfer.
Whatcom international students have been accepted to top universities all over the USA.
