Transfer Information

An applicant who has previously attended another regionally or Council on Occupational Education accredited post secondary institution will be considered a transfer student and will be required to furnish official transcripts of all work attempted at the previous institution. The college may also require the transfer of student documents required of first-time college students.

A transfer student who meets requirements for admission to a course creditable toward an associate degree shall be classified as a degree-eligible student. A transfer student who does not meet these requirements shall be classified as a non-degree-eligible student.

Unconditional Admission of Transfer Students

A transfer student must have submitted to the college an application for admission and official transcripts from all regionally or Council on Occupational Education accredited post secondary institutions attended and, as designed by the college, any other documents required for first-time college students.

A transfer student who attended another post secondary institution and who seeks credit for transfer to that parent institution may be admitted to the college as a transient student. The student must submit an application for admission and an official letter from the institution, which certifies that the credit earned at the college, will be accepted as a part of the student’s academic program. Such student is not required to file transcripts of previously earned credits at other post secondary institutions.

An applicant who has completed the baccalaureate degree will be required to submit only the transcript from the institution granting the baccalaureate degree.

Conditional Admission of Transfer Students

A transfer student who does not have on file official transcripts from all post secondary institutions attended and any additional documents required by the college may be granted conditional admission. No transfer student shall be allowed to enroll for a second semester unless all required admissions records have been received by the college before registration for the second semester.

If all required admissions records have not been received by the college prior to issuance of first semester grades, the grades will be reported on the transcript, but the transcript will read CONTINUED ENROLLMENT DENIED PENDING RECEIPT OF ADMISSIONS RECORDS. This notation will be removed from the transcript only upon receipt of all required admissions records.

Initial Academic Status of Transfer Students

A transfer student whose cumulative grade point average at the transfer institution(s) is 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale will be admitted on Clear academic status.

A transfer student who cumulative grade point average at the transfer institution(s) is less than 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will be admitted only on Academic Probation. The transcript will be read ADMITTED ON ACADEMIC PROBATION.

An applicant who has been academically suspended from another regionally or Council on Occupational Education accredited postsecondary institution may be admitted as a transfer student only after following the appeal process established at the college for “native” students who have been academically suspended. If the transfer student is admitted upon appeal, the student will enter the institution on Academic Probation. The transcript will read ADMITTED UPON APPEAL – ACADEMIC PROBATION.
