ANZ Transfer Pathway

Anthrozoology Transfer Pathway

This information will help guide students to prepare to apply for transfer into the Carroll College Anthrozoology program. All students need a minimum of 122 semester credits to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Carroll and the maximum number of lower division credits that can be transferred to Carroll is 60 semester/90 quarter.

Students thinking about transferring into anthrozoology should consider transferring after their first year in college as it takes three years to complete the course requirements for the major due to the sequencing of the required courses.
