Why Transfer?

    Today's job market requires workers to have more education and skills than ever before. Plus, a bachelor’s degree holder earns around $271 more per week than someone with an associate’s degree - that’s a new car every other year!
    You can go two years for the price of one. Maysville Community College (MCTC) offers many courses toward a bachelor's degree and lower tuition rates, so you can save money by earning your associate degree at MCTC before you transfer.
    Research shows that students who complete their associate degree before transferring are more likely to earn their bachelor’s degree in less time.
    Kentucky has statewide policies to help your general education courses transfer and make it easier to transfer after you complete an associate degree.
    MCTC transfer students are very successful and perform at either the same or higher academic level after transferring to a four-year institution than students who start at a university.
