What is a Transfer Program?

  • Associate in Science degree programs for students who plan to earn an associate degree at Jefferson State and then transfer to a 4-year institution to earn a bachelor's degree.
  • Jefferson State uses the STARS Transfer Agreement to guide students enrolled in these programs to take courses that are guaranteed to transfer to public institutions in Alabama.

What is a Career and Technical Program?

  • Associate in Applied Science degree programs for students who plan to complete an associate degree and go directly into the workforce rather than transfer to a 4-year institution.
  • Courses in these programs may not transfer to a 4-year institution as they are designed for employment rather than transferability. Each of these programs have a faculty advisor available to discuss their program in detail. 

What is DegreeWorks?

  • Degree Works is list of courses required to complete an associate degree. Enrolled students have access to their Degree Works audit on their myJSCC portal. The Graduation Office uses Degree Works to verify when all degree requirements have been met. Degree Works is a great tool to use along with the STARS Transfer Agreement and an academic advisor to keep you on track toward degree completion.  

What is STARS?

  • The STARS System allows our students to obtain approved transfer guides for their chosen major. When used correctly, the STARS system will help you navigate through the first two years of coursework and prevent the loss of credit hours upon transfer to your selected public 4-year institution in Alabama. Our advisors will be glad to help you obtain a complete STARS guide including the Area V Transfer Page for your transfer institution.
