College Transfer Pathways

College Transfer (CT) Pathways are designed for students who wish to begin earning college credits towards a baccalaureate (eventual transfer to a four-year college or university). Each CT Pathway comprises a structured set of general education courses leading to the completion of a college transfer degree. These pathways allow for the completion of over 30 semester credit hours of college transfer courses. CCP College Transfer Pathway options include:
