UMSL/SWIC Transfer Guides

SWIC Logo Long

Transfer Guides help a student attending the Southwestern Illinois College (SWIC) to select the best courses to eventually transfer them to UMSL for a particular major. Each guide lists the requirements of an Associates degree program at SWIC and includes certain courses within those requirements that will also apply to the selected UMSL Bachelors degree. Following the plans prescribed in the transfer guides will maximize the transferability and applicability of the student’s Associates degree. Be sure to use these guides in conjunction with advisement from an SWIC Academic Advisor or an UMSL Transfer Specialist.

All guides are written towards course offerings and degree requirements listed in the 2020/2021 Course Catalogs at UMSL and SWIC.
