We want to assist you in completing your goals here at NACC and make your transfer process as smooth as possible. You may have questions about your course credits or when you need to apply to the four-year institution. Rest assured, the College and Career Planning Center has you covered. Holly Williams is our Career/Transfer Advisor, and she is familiar with the programs at state universities and colleges. She can provide our transfer students with excellent guidance during their transition. Contact Holly today at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your transfer process.
Here is a Transfer Checklist to assist in your transfer process.
Northeast Alabama Community College has articulation and transfer agreements with all public four-year universities and most private four-year universities in Alabama. To learn more, visit the Statewide Transfer Articulation & Reporting System (STARS) . These access guides help students prepare to transfer to a four-year university. A valuable tool for advisors and students alike is the STARS (Statewide Articulation Reporting System) Guide. This guide helps transfer students to determine what courses will transfer to another public college or university in Alabama. It's a simple process!
STARS is a computerized system that coordinates transfer among public colleges and universities in Alabama. Through STARS you can obtain a STARS Guide for the university and major of your choice. Alabama state law guarantees that courses at NACC on your STARS Guide will count at the university if you follow all instructions and enroll there. Access STARS from the Internet anywhere, including NACC computers in the Library or computer labs: http://stars.troy.edu. It is the student’s responsibility to stay informed about STARS and the transfer institution’s requirements regarding individual programs of study.
Remember: If you follow all instructions on your Transfer Guide and are admitted to the college or university, Alabama state law GUARANTEES that your credits will transfer!!
For PRIVATE colleges and universities, you will need to use the 2 to 4 Transfer Guide.
Transfer to independent (private) colleges in Alabama through the 2to4 TRANSFER PROGRAM. 2to4 Program Transfer Guides tell you how to complete majors in Alabama’s independent colleges after earning an associate’s degree at Northeast (similar to the STARS Guides for public colleges). Your Transfer Guide lists the NACC courses to take for your chosen major at one of these colleges. If you follow the Transfer Guide, you can graduate from the independent college at the same time as students who start there.
2to4 Transfer Program information and Transfer Guides are here:
Follow these steps and enjoy a seamless transfer from NACC!
As of 2014, the following members of Alabama’s Independent Colleges and Universities (AAICU) participate in the 2to4 Program:
Birmingham-Southern College, Concordia College, Faulkner University, Huntingdon College, Judson College, Miles College, Samford University, Spring Hill College, Stillman College, Talladega College, Tuskegee University, United States Sports Academy, and University of Mobile
Northeast Alabama Community College partners with several schools to provide a smooth transition for college students. Many of these partnerships include scholarship opportunities, fee waivers, early admissions, transfer representatives that students can contact, and much more. If you are planning to transfer to a school not listed on this sheet, they likely still have scholarships and a transfer contact for you. For more information on these schools and others not listed, please contact Holly Williams, NACC Transfer Advisor, at email@example.com or 256-638-4418 ext. 2372. (Revised 9/16/20)
