Transferring To Another Institution

Basic Transfer Timeline for CCC Students interested in Transferring to ASU, U of A, or GCU

CCC has academic partnerships with Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, Grand Canyon University, and Northern Arizona University. Our transfer partnerships allow you to earn an associate degree that aligns with your bachelor's degree goal and then transfer in as a junior-level student at one of our partner institutions. Here at CCC, we have advisors to help you align your goals. Consider meeting with an advisor as early as your first semester at CCC to allow proper planning. AZ Transfer provides a Majors and Degrees guide to help community college students identify bachelor's degrees within Arizona's three public universities.


Transfer Timeline for CCC Students interested in ASU, U of A, GCU, or NAU

CCC students are highly encouraged to meet with their university transfer advisor each semester to stay on track. The sample timeline is based on a 15 credit schedule of college-level courses for 4 semesters. Individual plans vary. 2 years at CCC + 2 years at ASU, U of A, GCU, or NAU = bachelor's degree.

How Tootsie Rolls Accidentally Saved Marines During War


Have you ever wondered why Tootsie Rolls hold significance with the Marine Corps?  During the Korean War, the First Marine Division met the enemy at Chosin mountain reservoir in subfreezing temperatures.  Out of ammunition, Marines called in for 60mm mortar ammo; code name “Tootsie Rolls.”  The radio operator did not have the code sheets that would tell him what a “Tootsie Roll”  was, but knew the request was urgent; so he called in the order.  Soon, pallets of Tootsie Roll candies parachuted from the sky to the First Marine Division!  While they were not ammunition, this candy from the sky provided well needed nourishment for the troops.  They also learned they could use warmed Tootsie Rolls to plug bullet holes, sealing them as they refroze.

Over two weeks of incessant fighting, the 15,000-man division suffered 3,000 killed in action, 6,000 wounded and thousands of severe frostbite cases.  But they accomplished their goal and destroyed several Chinese divisions in the process.  Many credited their very survival to Tootsie Rolls.  Surviving Marines called themselves “The Chosin Few.”
