Northwest Community College

Transfer and Articulation Program (TAP)

The Transfer and Articulation Program (TAP) is a new program for ensuring Connecticut community college students complete degree programs that transfer to Connecticut State Universities and Charter Oak State College without either losing or generating excess credit. Students in the TAP will complete the first 60-63 credits at a community college and the final 60-63 credits at a CSU. Earning a transfer associate degree will grant its recipients junior status at each of the Connecticut State Universities and at Charter Oak State College. 

Successful completion of such a transfer associate degree will offer the student guaranteed admission and junior status to the receiving university or Charter Oak State College without ‘course by course’ transfer. Admission to particular degree programs may have additional GPA or other requirements. These requirements will be clearly spelled out in each major by major articulation.
