OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma is making it easier for students to transfer from community colleges to universities. That's according to a recent report by the Southern Regional Education Board.

Oklahoma guarantees that students earning associate's degrees can transfer in as juniors to public four-year colleges in Oklahoma.

All general education requirements transfer, along with many program-specific classes, either as course equivalents or electives.

Each year, faculty from across the state revise transfer guides that list courses at each college and the universities to which the credits will transfer. Officials say that helps eliminate confusion as well as wasted courses and expenses.

According to the report, about 35% of degree-seeking students enrolled in community colleges will transfer to another campus within six years.
