Transfer Credits

Once you have completed the聽Application for Admission聽and have been admitted to Vol 小猪视频官网, you may earn transfer credit.

Students transferring from other 小猪视频官网s should request official transcripts be mailed to the聽Office of Admissions聽from each 小猪视频官网 attended.

Transcripts must be official and must be mailed directly from the school to Vol 小猪视频官网. Vol 小猪视频官网 does not evaluate transcripts faxed or student copies. Transcripts should be mailed to:

Admissions Office
Volunteer 小猪视频官网 Community College

How Will My Credits Transfer?

Students looking for how their classes will transfer from school to school may refer to the聽transfer equivalency guides聽for available articulations. All collegiate level coursework for each transfer student will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • It is completed at a regionally accredited institution
  • Course content equivalent to course taught at the same level at Volunteer 小猪视频官网 Community College;
  • The same credentialing requirements for faculty at the transferring institution.

Credits from institutions on the quarter hour system will be converted to semester hours dividing the quarter hour by 1.5.

Courses that were taken at another institution at a junior level or higher generally transfer as Elective Credit. However, you do have the opportunity to request a review of the course by the respective Division for specific credit or other options as needed to meet graduation requirements.

Only grades of "D" or higher will be accepted for credit. Additionally, transfer grades are not calculated in the Vol 小猪视频官网 GPA.

Maximum External Credit Allowed From Various Sources

Not more than a total of聽75 percent of聽semester hours聽credit can be granted by Vol 小猪视频官网 through any combination of external sources: credit granted for service in the Armed Forces (including physical education credit and credit for courses offered through the American Council on Education or other service schools), advanced placement credit (the Advanced Placement Program and College-Level Examination Program of the College Entrance Examination Board, credit by examination, or previous training or work experience qualifying for degree credit).
