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.

  • Transfer students are urged not to enroll in any course(s) for which transfer credit is being sought until the transfer question is resolved.

  • 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.

  • These 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.

Transfer Credit Limitation

A student must earn a minimum of 25 percent of the credits required for graduation at ATC.

Regardless of the comparability of courses and the number of courses successfully completed at other accredited post-secondary institutions, a student must successfully complete a minimum of three higher-level courses (as determined by the academic advisor) representative of the major program or discipline at ATC. The total of both courses accepted for transfer and courses exempted cannot exceed 75 percent of the credit required for completion of the program.
