How to Transfer


Transfer In

Transfer credits to a Maine community college

Students interested in transferring credit to a Maine community college or earning credit for other work and learning experiences should start by contacting the admissions office at the college they are interested in attending.

Some basic transfer guidelines

In general, students may transfer credits earned:

  • At other accredited colleges and universities
  • Through courses taken for college credit while in high school
  • On Advanced Placement examinations

It’s also possible to earn college credit for work, military, and other life experiences, saving you both time and money as you work towards your degree. Learn  more»


Transfer Out

Transfer your Maine community college credits to another college or university

Maine’s community colleges offer an affordable pathway to a four-year degree.  Each year, hundreds of our students transfer on to four-year colleges and universities.  Here are key resources to make the process as easy as possible.


Reverse Transfer

If you transfer from a Maine community college before earning an associate degree or certificate, the credits you earn at your next school may make it possible for you to complete your community college credential. 

Fill out the MCCS and UMS reverse transfer participation and transcript request form to see if you qualify. Learn more about the MCCS and UMS reverse transfer partnership and get answers to frequently asked questions.
