Credit Transfer

If you have earned credits at a different institution, you may be able to transfer some or all of those credits to CCAC by submitting an Application for Credit Transfer.

  • Be sure to carefully follow the instructions as outlined on the form.
  • An application and an official transcript are required for each institution you attended.

How do I know what courses will transfer to CCAC?

CCAC Directors of Registration and Advisement will evaluate official transcripts from other colleges, universities, technical schools, etc. The following standards and restrictions will apply:

  • College-level course credit is granted for equivalent courses from any institution that is accredited by a Regional Accrediting Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
  • Coursework from non-accredited postsecondary schools will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to confirm equivalencies of course content and academic rigor.
  • Evaluations are curriculum-specific. Courses will be accepted for transfer to CCAC if they will fulfill the requirements of your program/major at the time of application for credit transfer. If you change your major, a new evaluation will be necessary.
  • Transfer credits must include courses with an earned C grade or better. Portfolio credits may also be accepted for transfer.
  • If you attended an institution that was based on a quarter system, the credits will be converted to a semester system.
  • Science and technical courses over 10 years old will not transfer to science, technology or health-related programs.
  • Transfer credits cannot exceed a maximum as defined by CCAC's residency requirements for a degree, certificate or diploma.
  • If you have earned credit outside the US, have your transcripts evaluated course by course by a NACES-approved credential evaluator and sent to the College. We prefer course-by-course format when requesting international transcripts.
