Evaluation of Transfer Credit
The individual college and program will complete a transfer credit evaluation after admission.

As a transfer applicant, your admission application will be evaluated based on an individual review of your academic record that includes all attempted and completed courses and grades earned. 

Applicants to our four-year colleges must have completed at least one college-level course in Mathematics and English with a grade of “C” or better.

Recalculation of GPA
Your entire coursework history, including grades earned from courses taken more than once, will be used to determine a grade point average (GPA). If more than one college was attended, your GPA will be determined through a combined calculation of all attempted coursework. Please note that plus (+) and minus (-) additions to grades are not reflected in the GPA. Your high school/secondary school record will be considered if you have completed fewer than 30 college credits. Please review the Transfer Admission Profile (available at to get an idea of the mean GPA used for admission by each college.
