  3. At 45 credits or just about a semester from completing your degree, complete the Intent to Enroll/Transfer Application form.
  4. When grades post for the semester, your application, YCCC transcript, high school transcript, and immunization records will be sent by YCCC to the University of Maine system processing center for FREE. You are responsible for sending any other documents or prior college transcripts.
  5. Once you complete your associate degree in Liberal Studies, you are guaranteed admission* as a junior at the Maine public university of your choice.


*This program does not guarantee admission into a particular degree program. Since some university programs have specific criteria and/or grade point average (GPA) requirements for admission and class standing. You should work closely with your advisors (faculty, YCCC Transfer advisor, and receiving institution Transfer advisor) to make sure you are meeting the requirements for the baccalaureate degree program you choose. In most cases, a baccalaureate degree can be completed in two additional academic years.
