Transfer Credit FAQ

How will my transfer credits be evaluated?
 Your transfer coursework will be evaluated based on course descriptions. COCC will first evaluate a course for direct equivalency to a COCC course. If no direct equivalency is available, we will award credit towards electives.

Will all of my transfer credits be accepted?
 All of your transfer credit will be reviewed. Transfer credit is only considered for courses where a grade (of A, B, C, D, Pass, Satisfactory) and credit have been earned.
Certain types of credit, such as upper-division (300-400 level coursework), or non-traditional credit may be evaluated by request.  
See College Catalog for more information regarding limits on transfer credit.

How long will it take to have my transfer credit evaluated?
COCC evaluates credit on a first-come, first-served basis. Most of the time they are evaluated within a few weeks, but this may vary depending on volume or the time of the year. 

What if I transfer from a semester school?
Your credits from a semester school will be converted to quarter credits at evaluation, and can be used to meet requirements at COCC. One semester credit is equal to 1.5 quarter credits.

Will my transfer grade point average (GPA) be included on my transcript?
Your transfer GPA will not be on your COCC transcript, or calculated in your COCC GPA.

Why does some of my transfer credit look different GradTracks?
If there is not an equivalent course at COCC, we assign codes specific to the subject area (for example, 1XX, 1CT, 2AL). Often these courses still meet specific certificate/degree requirements.
All transfer coursework will show letter grades and are labeled as transfer with 'TR' following the grade.

What if I have questions about my transfer credit?
