CSCU Transfer Ticket Programs

Earn a Bachelor’s Degree Affordably

In this era of ever-increasing higher education costs, Connecticut’s twelve community colleges, four state universities and Charter Oak State College have partnered to offer a low-cost pathway to a bachelor’s degree.

  1. Start at one of Connecticut’s 12 community colleges.
  2. Choose a Transfer Ticket career pathway and complete an associate degree.
  3. Transfer to Central, Eastern, Southern, Western or Charter Oak and earn a bachelor’s degree.


Students pursuing a Transfer Ticket associate degree will be paired with an academic advisor at each institution and know exactly which courses to take. The degrees can be attained without incurring extra expense or requiring extra credits.

After completing a Transfer Ticket associate degree, students can transfer to any Connecticut state university – as a junior – confident that they have only half of the degree requirements remaining in their major.


 *Major has additional admissions requirements at CSU

Not all Transfer Ticket associate degrees will be available at all colleges. All degree and transfer requirements, as well as other information, can be found at


The economic advantages are clear – students completing their first two years of a bachelor’s degree at a community college will save thousands of dollars in tuition and fees, while still receiving an exceptional education from faculty who are experts in their field.

Students can pursue a Transfer Ticket associate and bachelor’s degree on a full-time or part-time basis. Financial aid is available for qualified students.
