Transfer Credit

REGULATIONS:

  • Transfer credit procedure shall be initiated in the Student Records and Financial Services Office.*
  • Evaluation of transfer credit from another institution shall be made by the course discipline department chair or designated appointee.
  • Credit will be given for courses passed with a grade of "C" or better. In the evaluating of transfer credit, a grade of "S" or "P" will be considered equivalent to a grade of "C".
  • Credit will be given for courses passed with a grade of "C-" or better if the overall index of the courses being transferred remains at 2.0 or higher.
  • Credit hours granted will be equivalent to the corresponding course hours in this college. Partial credit may be granted with the approval of the department chair in whose department the course is offered.
  • Transfer credits from other institutions will not be included in the calculations of indexes.
  • Evaluation of transfer credit from one major to another within the college shall be made by the department chair or designated appointee(s) in the department to which the student transfers. Grades, including "Fs", for courses that have been taken and that are required in the new program, shall be transferred as earned.
  • Transfer from one program to another requires consultation with the department chair or designee of the department in which the student is registered and approval of the department chair or designee of the department to which the student wishes to transfer.
  • A student may satisfy degree requirements by taking courses at another college and transferring no more than 12 credit hours within a seven-year period after leaving this college. This transfer program shall have prior written approval by the department chair. Courses transferred in this manner may replace comparable courses already taken at this college, thereby removing such courses from the calculation of index.

Transfer Credit Manual

  • Courses will be transferred in per the college’s Transfer Credit Manual. All courses in the manual have been evaluated by the course discipline department chair.

  • The transfer evaluation of a course within a specific discipline may be changed on an individual student basis if the discipline department chair is willing to do so.
  • If the discipline department chair is not willing to change the transfer evaluation of a course on an individual student basis, that student may appeal per the transfer credit appeals process found on the website.
