Transfer Advisor

It's simple to guarantee that your credits will transfer. After you enter the STARS website, you can select "How to Use STARS" for instructions to print a Transfer Guide.

STARS live help: See below for details.

Transfer Guide: Your printable Transfer Guide lists what Northeast courses to take for your major at your chosen public university.

  • The Transfer Guide will be honored for 4 years after the date you print it.

  • Instructions may tell you to print some additional information and attach it as part of your Transfer Guide.

  • Print the Transfer Guide and other university information for your records and a second copy for your advisor.

  • You are required to have a Transfer Guide at Northeast registration and to give your advisor a copy.

  • You may print as many different Transfer Guides as you want for different majors and different universities. When you decide on one Guide, you must follow it completely.

Areas: All Transfer Guides require courses in five Areas. These are the same five Areas in the Northeast curriculum:

Area I: Written Composition
Area II: Humanities & Fine Arts
Area III: Natural Sciences & Mathematics
Area IV: History, Social, & Behavioral Sciences
Area V: Pre-professional, Major; & Elective Courses (Area V courses may vary by university, as shown on university websites and STARS.)
