UMSL/East Central College Transfer Guides

ECC Logo

Transfer Guides help a student attending East Central College (ECC) 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 ECC 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 ECC Academic Advisor or a UMSL Transfer Specialist.

All guides are written towards course offerings and degree requirements listed in the 2015/2016 Couse Catalogs at UMSL and ECC.
