Real Life Step

Thousands of Alabama’s freshmen and sophomores start their first college classes at our community colleges before transferring to a four-year university. The smaller class sizes we offer mean more personalized attention, which eases your transition to the college experience. And, you save money by starting with us first! Courses at Alabama’s community colleges are less than half the cost of the same academic courses that you would take at a four-year university.

A system called STARS (Statewide Transfer and Articulating Reporting System) helps ensure that the credits you earn at your community college actually transfer. The STARS Guide shows you what courses you can take that will transfer for your chosen career path or major.

If you want to transfer to a private or independent college in Alabama, the ACCS has an articulation agreement with the Alabama Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (AAICU). The agreement helps with the seamless transferring of credits to the state’s private colleges.
