International Transfer Credit
If you have completed credits at a non-U.S. institution you may be eligible to receive credit toward COCC certificate/degree requirements.

If your transcripts are in a language other than English they must first be translated. All non-U.S. transcripts must be submitted to a credential evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Be prepared to pay for fees associated with these services.

Lastly, you must request the transcript and the detailed course-by-course evaluation be sent to COCC’s Admissions and Records office.

See College Catalog for more information regarding international transfer credit evaluation.

Non-Regionally Accredited Coursework

If you earned credit from an institution that is not regionally accredited, or was not accredited at the time you took courses, you may still be eligible to receive credit toward COCC certificate/degree requirements.

After submitting official transcripts to COCC’s Admission and Records office, you must submit a student petition that includes course descriptions/syllabi for courses you wish to have reviewed for credit.

See College Catalog for more information regarding non-accredited institutions.

 

For more information about non-traditional credit, contact transcript and degree evaluation at myprogress@cocc.edu or 541-383-7500.
