"Transfer Friendly"

Universities throughout the country are "transfer friendly". It is not uncommon for the AA and AS degrees to be accepted as a block of study in place of specific first and second year course requirements. All first and second year (100 and 200 level) education courses have common names and numbers throughout the North Dakota University System, eliminating the chance of confusion about course equivalence.

Course Planning

Students with the expectation of entering a baccalaureate college should consult the catalog of the degree-granting college and should examine the prerequisites in the fields in which they are interested. Students should confer with their advisor and plan their entire community college courses early in their college career. Students working toward an Associate in Arts degree or Associate in Science degree who do not intend to transfer their credits to another college may select electives from any department provided they meet Lake Region State College requirements.

In many instances, substitutions or changes may be made, depending upon the needs and background of the student and the specific requirements of the baccalaureate college to which the student intends to transfer. Check with Student Services for specific Articulation Agreements with the four-year college.
