Student at Aiken Technical College

Returning or Readmit Student

Former Aiken Technical College students who have not been enrolled at the school for the preceding two semesters must complete a new application for admission before re-entering.

Students re-applying must meet current admissions criteria, including testing and placement requirements. COMPASS placement scores are only valid for three years, so some students may need to retest before being re-admitted.

Students re-applying do not have to pay additional application fees.

College Transcripts

Applicants who have attended a regionally accredited college or university should request that all colleges previously attended send official transcripts directly to the ATC Enrollment Services Center.

These transcripts will be reviewed to determine whether placement testing requirements will be waived and if transfer credit may be awarded. Unofficial transcripts are used only for admission purposes and are not evaluated.

  • If a current catalog from the college where previous courses were taken is not on file, the student is responsible for providing a catalog with official descriptions of courses to accompany the transfer request.

  • The Enrollment Services Center evaluates official college transcripts for transfer of credit for applicants and students. Official transcripts are sent directly from one college to another, presented in a sealed envelope from the previous college or via electronic data exchange.

  • The Enrollment Services office posts the approved course(s) to the student's transcript and sends the student a copy of the evaluation form.

  • The following criteria are used to determine acceptability of prior college course work for advanced standing:

  • The final grade for the course(s) must be C or better.

  • The course(s) must have been taken at a regionally accredited institution; if from a non-regionally accredited foreign post-secondary institution, the courses must have been recommended by the NACES-member external evaluation service.

  • The course(s) must be applicable to the program in which the student plans to enroll in order for the course to be considered for graduation.

  • The course(s) must be college-level; no course that is remedial/developmental in nature will be accepted.

A major consideration in the evaluation of a course for transfer of credit is the equivalency of that course to an ATC course.
