Capital Community College has a number of transfer articulation agreements with public and private colleges and universities including the University of Connecticut and the Connecticut State University system (Central, Eastern, Southern and Western). It is important that students seek the advice of a Guided Pathways Advisor early in their academic career to ensure proper course selection. Credits that are transferable and applicable vary from college to college, so it is critical that students learn about the college of their choice, and the transfer process for that college.

Cross Registration at Connecticut Public Colleges and Universities
Guidelines for Exchange of Students Among Institutions of Public Higher Education
The Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education approves the following guidelines for exchange of students among institutions in the state system of higher education, which will provide an opportunity for students enrolled in a community college, state university, or the University of Connecticut to benefit significantly by taking a course or courses not available where they are registered but offered at another state institution.
- Preliminary, informal inquiry should first establish that there is a substantial degree of interest on the part of one or more qualified students enrolled at the home institution in a particular course offered by the host institution but not by the home institution.
- The host institution, after making accommodation for its own students, will determine the number of vacant student places in the course that could be filled without exceeding the acceptable limit on class size.
- The home institution will recommend not more than this number of its students to the host institution, which will examine these students’ qualifications for taking the course in question.
- Students admitted to a course or courses will register under the procedures for unclassified students in the host institution, which will issue a transcript record of credit earned after the successful completion of the course.
- The home institution will accept this credit in transfer under its own procedures, making it a part of the student’s record at his or her home institution.
- Students who have paid the tuition and fees of full-time students at their home institutions shall be exempt from further charges. Copies of receipted fee bills should be accepted by the host institution in lieu of payment.
- Part-time students shall not be exempt but shall pay the tuition and fees required of unclassified students who take the same course at the host institution.
