Direct Transfer Degrees 

The Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) allows students in Washington state to transfer a “package” of credits for certain degrees, so that when you transfer from a 2-year college to most public 4-year colleges and universities in the state, the 4-year institution does not have to evaluate each course on your transcript. 

As outlined in the agreement, 4-year colleges will apply up to 110 quarter credits from Cascadia to the credits required for the Bachelor’s degree, subject to their individual policies on the transfer of lower-division credits. To complete a bachelor’s degree, you must meet any additional requirements of the college you transfer to, such as general education core courses, cultural diversity courses, and foreign language courses.

  • Priority consideration in the admissions for most humanities and social science majors public universities ahead of students without a degree.
  • Completion of lower division general education requirements.
  • Credit for all courses completed within the DTA up to and in some cases beyond 90 credits.
  • Opportunity to explore several fields of study through the category of up to 30 credits of elective courses.
  • Opportunity to complete prerequisites for a future major.
