This site is provided for transfer assistance for students working toward the completion of an associate degree designed for transfer from Maysville Community and Technical College who plan to transfer to Northern Kentucky University.  The information provided on this web site does not take the place of an advisor or counselor on your campus. 

Pathways to Degree Completion
