Why now?

Transfer advising allows you to determine which classes you need to take now, at TTC, to ensure seamless transition to your transfer college. You will need to be proactive in this process, since you have to identify your intended program of study (i.e., major) and transfer college.

Doing so will not only save you time, but it will also save you money. Calculate your savings with the Palmetto Calculator
