Transfer and Transcript Information for International and Immigrant Students


Transfer Credits

Non-U.S. (foreign) transcript evaluation:

JCCC only accepts evaluations done by the ECE agency. These evaluations are considered a recommendation only.

  • An ECE evaluation is only a recommendation. 
  • An ECE recommendation may transfer in as elective credits, but will not fulfill core degree requirements.
  • Other agency evaluations (EEI or WES) or another academic institutions will not be considered by JCCC.
  • Consider the cost of the evaluation service prior to proceeding with this request, as there is no guarantee ECE evaluation will result in credit transfer in to JCCC.

Follow ECE’s instructions to submit an evaluation application. Hand-delivered ECE requests will not be considered for credit transfer purposes.

  • Request a course-by-course evaluation with a GPA calculation.
  • If you want a copy to be sent to you, you will need to pay an additional fee.
  • Request the evaluation be mailed directly to JCCC from ECE.
