How to Transfer

Transfer from a Maine community college.

Start here. Go anywhere.

As the least expensive college option in New England, Maine’s community colleges can save you thousands of dollars in the cost of a four-year degree.

The math is simple:

2 years at community college + 2 years at a 4-year college or university = an affordable 4-year degree.

Each year hundreds of our students transfer on to four-year colleges and universities around the country.

Many stay right here in Maine, where a new, comprehensive transfer agreement between the state’s community colleges and the University of Maine System has streamlined the process in order to save you time and money.

Some key resources can help make the process as easy as possible.
