Direct Transfer Agreement

The Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) associate degree is designed to transfer to most Bachelor of Arts degrees at all four-year colleges and universities in Washington state. The DTA is sometimes called an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Arts and Sciences.

DTA degrees provide students:

  • Priority consideration in the admissions for most humanities and social science majors public universities ahead of students without a degree.
  • Completion of lower division general education requirements.
  • Credit for all courses completed within the DTA up to and in some cases beyond 90 credits.
  • Opportunity to explore several fields of study through the category of up to 30 credits of elective courses.
  • Opportunity to complete prerequisites for a future major.

DTA Associate Degree Guidelines

The Intercollege Relations Commission (ICRC) — a unit of The Washington Council — oversees the guidelines for DTAs. The ICRC maintains the most current edition of the ICRC Handbook which provides the DTA degree’s requirements, provisos and other requirements.
