The state’s community colleges, public universities and even many private colleges, have joined forces to create a new Transfer Majors program.

In a nutshell, the program creates specified Transfer Major Associate Degrees, laying out the precise course path you complete here at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges before continuing on at the four-year college to which you transfer.

That means you’ll take general education classes as well as classes required for your major.
