Transfer Transcript Articulation and Evaluation
COCC will conduct an evaluation of
transfer coursework once you have applied to COCC, paid the application fee and
submitted your official transcripts.
feel a transfer course meets a particular requirement, and was not accepted on
your evaluation as such, send a request for reconsideration to MyProgress@cocc.edu. Your request will be reviewed
and a response will be sent to your COCC email account. If you wish to petition
the decision made in response to your request, you may file a formal petition
with the Admissions and Records office.
Limits on college credit transfer
- Subject matter may not duplicate
that for which credit has previously been awarded in transfer or at COCC.
- Credit awarded by another
institution for life experience is not transferable to COCC.
- Credit for practicum/internships
will be transferred as elective credit only.
- Courses which espouse a particular
religious view do not equate to COCC courses.
- In some cases, science credits more
than five years old may not be applicable to specific programs.
- Transfer credit is only considered
for courses where a grade (of A, B, C, D, Pass, Satisfactory) and credit have
been awarded. Note that a D, D+, D-, will not be accepted for most degrees or
- COCC will not accept courses below
college level except for specific program requirements.
- Students working toward a COCC
degree must complete a minimum of 24 COCC credits. Certificate-seeking students
must complete a minimum of 18 COCC credits.
- Upper level coursework may be
evaluated on an individual basis if applicable to a specific program or as elective
Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Credit will be awarded following
approved guidelines from COCC academic departments. Credit is considered when
it is equivalent to regular course offerings at COCC and when it is not
duplicated. See College catalog for a list of accepted AP and CLEP test scores and
their COCC course equivalencies. For International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores and their COCC course equivalencies, please see the IB equivalency table.
It is the responsibility of each
student with coursework from foreign universities to have the transcript(s)
translated (if in language other than English) and evaluated prior to submittal
to COCC. Send your official transcript(s) to a credential evaluation service
that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services
(http://www.naces.org/members.htm). Fees are the responsibility of the student and range from
$165 - $295. Send official "course-by-course/detail" evaluation to
Admissions & Records.
- Some variation occurs in evaluation of foreign
coursework due to differing countries, schools and/or credential
evaluation services. Degrees from foreign countries do not waive the General
Education or Writing Competency requirements. Coursework must be at a
level of achievement comparable to COCC's A, B, C and D grades. English
taught outside the United States may not meet COCC's English composition
requirement. Evaluations of foreign transcripts may take significantly
longer than the normal processing time.
Council on Education (ACE) guidelines are used with discretion when considering
military credit for courses (not occupations) documented on the DD-214 and/or official
training documents. Credit is considered when it is equivalent to regular
course offerings at COCC, when it is not duplicated and when it is applicable
to a student’s degree requirements. Four (4) credit hours are awarded toward
HHP requirements for Basic Training from the DD-214. The Northwest Commission on Colleges and
Universities limits credit for prior learning to a maximum of 25% of the credits needed
for a degree.
VA regulations require that we evaluate all previous military training transcripts. You must submit your official military transcripts by the end of your first term receiving benefits.
