An articulation agreement is a set of transfer plans between two institutions facilitating accurate and efficient transfer between those institutions. A transfer plan is a determination by both the community college and the university that courses taken within a transfer plan will count toward a student's major at the university. These plans are also called 2+2 agreements, that is, the first two years taken at the community college and the last two years taken at the university. CCQ students can expect a "seamless" transfer if following a transfer plan based on equivalencies.
CCQ may not have articulation plans with many of the universities around the world. We recommend that you print the study or degree plan of the university that you would like to transfer to and make an appointment with a counselor or advisor to see your options at CCQ.
Note: An established transfer plan guarantees the transfer of courses toward a particular major at the transfer institution of choice. However, the student should check with the university to insure that he/she has the most recent update.
3. Questions to ask a University when you’re Transferring: It’s important to see if a university fits you. It maybe the best in a particular field, but it’s more important to know if it fits your learning style and personality.

There are many scholarships available for Qatari students when transferring. The Supreme Education Council’s Higher Education Institute is one of Qatar’s leading scholarship providers.
Studying abroad can be a rewarding experience. Please ask yourself these questions:
To provide programs and services that ensure fair and appropriate access to programs, services, facilities, and activities for students with special needs, within the proper environment
The Community College of Qatar offers accommodations counseling, evaluation referral, disability-related information, and adaptive technology counseling and equipment for academically related purposes. Although Special Needs Services does not offer disability evaluation and/or testing, tutoring, personal expenses, attendants or scholarships, we will provide referral information.
A “special need” is defined as a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Learning is an example of a major life activity. If you have a mental or physical condition, a history of such a condition, or a condition which may be considered by others as substantially limiting, you may have a defined special need. In accordance with Law No 2 of the year 2004, and Article 49 in the Constitution of Qatar: "Education is the right of all.", and "the State shall extend efforts to achieve fair and appropriate access in education for all". In this regard, the Community College Qatar will ensure to provide educational opportunities that guarantee fair and appropriate access to programs, services, facilities, and activities for students with special needs. A “Special need” is not a factor in the Admission to the Community College of Qatar. All applicants to the Community College of Qatar are reviewed through the same admissions process.
In order to receive special needs-related accommodations and services, you should abide by the following process:
In order to register with the Special Needs Services Office, a student must present documentation of legally recognized special needs. SNS serves as the repository for medical documentation of disabilities. Documentation submitted to SNS is confidential and used solely for the purpose of assisting students in identifying and securing accommodations and services to support their full participation at the Community College of Qatar.
Once documentation has been submitted:
Documentation submitted should be current (in most cases no older than three to five years), comprehensive, and include the following:
The documentation must be on letterhead, typed, dated, and signed.
How to Get Documentation
The professional making the diagnosis of a disability should be an appropriately trained evaluator, such as a physician, psychologist, psychiatrist, or educational diagnostician. For example, an audiologist would diagnose a hearing impairment; a psychiatrist, psychologist, or clinical social worker would diagnose a psychological disability. Documentation from a family member or family friend is not acceptable.
SNS provides Guidelines for Documentation. If you have and questions about documentation that is requested, please feel free to contact the SNS Counselor at 4495-3710 (Female Counselor) or 4495-3709 (Male Counselor)
SNS reserves the right to request additional information or evaluation. Information regarding resources to use in obtaining an evaluation is available from our office.
The goal of accommodations is to provide access to educational programs and co-curricular activities. Some general information about accommodations:
