One-Plus-One Transfer Agreements 

JCC has special arrangements with Alfred State College of Technology at Alfred (Alfred State) in veterinary technology. Under this "one-plus-one" agreement, students normally spend one year at JCC and then transfer to Alfred State to complete the second year of the degree program. Through appropriate course selection in consultation with an academic advisor at JCC, students prepare for successful transfer and earn their degrees from the transfer institution.
