Ashland Community and Technical College students can select a transfer program that will take them to nearly every college and university in the country.

Specific transfer programs, commonly called 2+2 programs, allow students to complete an associate degree at ACTC and transfer smoothly into a bachelor's degree program at a specific university. Students follow a curriculum that lists all the courses to take at ACTC before transfer.
