UDC Transfer Center
UDC Welcomes Transfer Students
Each new academic term, hundreds of transfer students make UDC the next stop on their college journey. We’re thrilled to welcome you among them.
Your goal is our goal: graduation, once and for all!
We will help you find the most direct path to a completed degree, based on:
- The college credits you’ve already earned and can transfer to UDC
- The many in-demand degree programs available at UDC
Our transfer admissions counselors and advisors will work with you to choose the quickest and most efficient way to finish your degree.
If ALL of the following criteria are true for you, then you are in the right place and can apply to UDC as a transfer student:
- You seek either an Associate degree from UDC’s Community College or a Bachelor’s degree from UDC’s Flagship University.
- You have completed high school and are currently attending or have ever attended another college or university (either inside or outside the U.S.).
Rule #2 includes those wanting to earn a second bachelor’s degree. However, if you have ever attended UDC as a degree-seeking student, including having graduated from UDC’s Community College, please use these returning student admissions guidelines instead.
