University Transfer of GCC courses

There are two ways to determine how GCC courses will transfer to the public universities in Arizona.
  • AZ Course Equivalency Guide (CEG) for BIO
    This link will allow you to navigate to a list of how biology courses taken during the current academic year will transfer to the three public universities in Arizona. This Course Equivalency Guide (CEG) will open in a new window. On the first CEG menu, select Maricopa Community College District and from the subsequent department listing, click BIO to bring up a list of all BIO courses taught in the district and their university equivalents. When you are finished reviewing this list, close that window to return to this page.

  • Individual course evaluation by query
    This link will allow you to look up individual courses taken during any semester and determine how they transfer to the public universities in Arizona.
    Once you click on the link above, the CEG page will open in a new window. Select the "Search All CEGs!" link towards the bottom of that page to go to a course by course search engine. To start your search, you will need to select the academic year when you took the course from the pull down menu and Maricopa Community College District as the "Source Institution." Type in the course number (e.g., BIO 102) (making sure you have a space between the prefix BIO and the number), leave all of the other spaces blank and simply click on the Query button. This should bring up the equivalent courses and general education categories for that course at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University. Close this window when you are finished to return to this page.
