Academic Transfer Students

Central Community College offers academic transfer programs specifically designed to provide the first two years of a four-year degree.

ACTR graduates reached a peak in the academic year 2014-15, but have remained steady with an average of 170 ACTR awards earned over the last four years.

Nebraska Transfer Initiative

CCC is one of 24 Nebraska colleges that signed the Nebraska Transfer Initiative in 1995, agreeing to accept a common core of 34 semester-hours of credit completed at any of the participating colleges. The Nebraska Transfer Initiative is designed to smooth the transfer process for community college graduates who want to complete a bachelor’s degree. 

Transfer Agreements

Through specific transfer agreements with individual institutions, students completing associate of arts or associate of science degrees can transfer up to 66 semester-hours of credit earned at Central Community College to many four-year colleges. 

NACRAO Agreement

Central Community College is a signatory of the NACRAO (Nebraska Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers) Agreement. Students who complete specified liberal arts courses may apply them toward the general studies program requirements for a degree at other participating Nebraska colleges. Contact the campus admissions office for NACRAO information.

Transfer Outcomes

Over the past few years, academic transfer graduates have transferred successfully to 21 public and private four-year colleges in Nebraska and more than 50 out-of-state colleges.

Follow-up studies show that graduates of Central Community College academic transfer programs are well prepared to continue their education following graduation. Students transferring to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, as a group, achieve overall grades comparable to other juniors and seniors who attended UNL for their first two years of college.
