Transfer Services

We provide a variety of resources for students planning to make a transfer from the community college to a 4-year university.  If this is your future, we want to help you choose Odessa College courses that will transfer and count toward your university degree. Sometimes, students don't realize that there is a difference between transferability and applicability. In other words, courses may transfer to a university, but not apply to the major you have chosen.  In the Advising Center the Success Coaches offer current and accurate information – whether you need a transfer plan, transfer equivalencies, or general core requirements.  Students have access to computers to conduct searches for all university admission requirements.  We will help you find the answers!

Reverse Transfer

Although it is highly recommended that you complete your associate degree, there are times that transferring may be your best plan.  Academic credits for course work completed at a university are transferred back to OC to satisfy the associate degree requirements.   Courses you have completed at a university are applied to both the associate and baccalaureate degrees.  You must be a former OC student and must meet the OC resident credit requirements.

Residency Credit Requirement:

Option 1: Complete a minimum of 25% of the semester credit hours required for the degree, excluding developmental or awarded credits, at Odessa College.

Option 2: Complete a minimum of 18 semester credit hours, excluding developmental or awarded credits, at Odessa College; at least 12 of which must be the last hours taken before the degree is granted; and, if the degree is in a career, technical or workforce education program, complete at least 12 semester hours in the major field at Odessa College.
