Utilize previous college credit for placement or prerequisites
Students with previous college credit may be able to use transcripts for placement into math, English and a variety of other courses.
Credits earned at institutions accredited by their regional accrediting association may be accepted. To find out if an educational institution is accredited by their regional accrediting association, you can use the accreditation database provided by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education. On the website, you can search for an institution by its name and find its accrediting agency.
To utilize previous college credit for placement or prerequisite purposes please bring unofficial transcripts or a progress report to the Welcome Center to meet with a Getting Started Specialist. Unofficial transcripts must include:
- Institution name
- Student name
- Course grade in either letter or decimal value
Official transcripts and a Transcript Evaluation Request must be submitted to Enrollment Services for application of credits toward degree requirements. The Enrollment Services website has more information about the transcript evaluation process including use of Joint Service Transcripts.
