Transcripts received from other colleges and universities are required to be evaluated to determine what previous credits will transfer toward your academic goals at JCCC, and to determine if you are eligible for financial aid or scholarships.

Evaluation Process

All transfer credit will be converted to the semester-hour system. All credits earned with an "F" grade or higher will be articulated and calculated in your cumulative G.P.A. Visit the Financial Aid page titled Satisfactory Academic Progress for more information on how transfer coursework can affect students. For Financial Aid purposes:

  • Coursework that is currently “In Progress” will be articulated as such at JCCC and will be counted in the student’s attempted hours. The student must request an official transcript be sent once that coursework is completed and a final grade is posted.
  • Coursework withdrawn from and graded with a “W” or similar mark will be counted in the student’s attempted hours.
  • Repeated coursework is also included in the student’s attempted hours. However, only the last grade earned is used to calculate the student’s GPA.

Undergraduate transfer credits will be accepted from colleges and universities holding regional accreditation. Graduate level coursework will not be evaluated. Coursework must have been completed after the year that the institution received accreditation from one of these accrediting bodies:

  • Higher Learning Commission
  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools
  • New England Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Western Association of Colleges and Schools
  • or other institutions approved by JCCC

Email Notification of Evaluation Completion

  • Once a transcript has been evaluated, you will receive an email at your JCCC student email address notifying you of the completion of the evaluation.

Use of Transcript Evaluation Records

  • JCCC counselors have access to the evaluation information and can review it with you.
  • You may also access your transfer work and print a degree audit using DegreeCheck.
