Direct Transfer Agreements
Direct transfer agreements are statewide articulated transfer degree agreements
between the community colleges and public baccalaureate universities. Students will
enter the university at junior standing. Admission to Washington Public Baccalaureate
Schools of Business or Elementary Education are NOT guaranteed to students holding
an D.T.A. degree. It is highly recommended that students meet with an academic adviser
on a regular basis to be sure that requirements specified in these degrees are met.
Students should also seek academic consulting at the university to which they plan
to transfer early in their educational planning to learn about additional requirements
and procedures for admission.
Major Related Programs
To help transfer students better prepare for the junior year, two-year and four-year
institutions are working together to create transfer associate degrees outlining the
appropriate courses in order for students to be well prepared to enter the major upon
transfer – MRP degrees. MRP degrees follow either the DTA/Associate of Arts format or
the Associate in Science-Transfer format.
