University Transfer

The 2+2 Path

The 2+2 program allows you to start your education at a community college and finish your bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university. HCC helps you explore all your university options while you complete the first two years of your education with us. Whether you want to attend a liberal arts institution, a nationally-ranked university, or an Ivy League school, we can help you get there! By transferring your credits to a four-year college or university, you can graduate with a bachelor's degree at a much lower cost.

2+2 Florida International Transfer Fairs

The 2+2 Florida International Transfer Fair aids in creating successful university transfer experiences, and it is now an integral part of transfer programs at Hillsborough Community College and the community colleges who participate. Click here to learn more.

Transfer Pathways

HCC has articulation agreements with many other institutions that allow you to apply credits earned here to a particular academic program at the other institution. Articulation agreements benefit students by outlining clear academic pathways. They also help reduce the number of courses needed to take to complete a degree, saving you time and money. Click here to see HCC's current list of articulation agreements.

As an HCC associate degree graduate, you are guaranteed a seat in one of the 12 Florida public universities.

HCC-USF Tampa International 2+2 Agreement

HCC's university transfer agreement with the University of South Florida (USF) provides Conditional Admission to USF! When you apply for admission into one of HCC's Associate in Arts transfer programs, you can choose to receive a conditional admission letter from USF. Just select the option that you would like to receive the letter when you complete our online International Student Application! When you apply for your F-1 student visa at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your home country, you can present this letter along with your admissions letter from HCC.
