The Joint Transfer Council (JTC) is a multi-sector standing committee that works to improve and advance student transfer in Washington.
Since 2003, the multi-sector Council has identified statewide transfer issues and recommended policy strategies for transfer of credit between institutions and sectors. JTC focuses primarily on the development of new transfer pathways, monitoring and updating existing transfer pathways and degrees, and establishing multi-sector transfer policy. The JTC also communicates state transfer policy to various audiences and stakeholders.
