If you're transferring to TCC from another accredited school, your evaluation processing will begin automatically once all of the criteria listed below has been completed.
Criteria for transfer evaluation:
- Must have all official college transcripts from accredited institutions received by TCC
- Must be registered for a course in the current or a future term, or
If not registered, at least one of all required official college transcripts must be received by TCC within the immediate prior six months
- Must have an active program status in an undergraduate program
- Must not be a transient student
- Must not be a continuing education-only student
Students with only international transcripts or military credit will be excluded.
Doesn't my transcript need to be evaluated before I can register?
No. Once TCC has received your official transcript, your TSI status may be updated.
If you have taken a prerequisite course elsewhere, a TCC career advisor can assist you with a registration permission or any other questions if you are unable to register online for a desired class.
An evaluation is used to:
- Provide a consistent method of applying transfer coursework to a TCC degree
- Assist you in tracking progress toward a degree
- Support academic advisement
- Satisfy financial aid and veteran affairs requirements
Am I eligible for a reverse transfer degree?
A reverse transfer degree allows you to combine your community college credits with other college credits you earned after leaving TCC to potentially meet requirements to earn an associate degree.
If you're not currently enrolled at TCC, contact email@example.com after sending your transfer school's transcripts to TCC. Include your TCC student ID number (if you know it). We will be happy to review your transfer work from after you left us and see if you qualify for an associate degree from TCC!
