Request Transfer Credit

​Transfer credits may be used to help you to meet the course requirements of a degree or certificate program at the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC). 

Transfer Credit General Guidelines

  • Course credits from regionally accredited institutions
  • Final grade of C or higher
  • Equivalent to courses in our current Academic Catalog
  • Apply toward a CCC certificate or degree

Current students and former students with an established CCC course history may request an transcript evaluation. Transferred course grades are not reflected in your CCC grade point average (GPA). However, your transferred credit hours will be listed in your student history under transfer credit. NOTE: transcript evaluations can only be completed based upon official transcripts. 

We encourage you to meet with your College Advisor to find out how your transfer credits can be used toward completing your academic program at CCC.





How to Transfer College Credits

  1. Submit your official transcripts to The Records office in Room A129. The Credit evaluation process takes approximately 2 - 4 weeks.
  2. Request an evaluation of your transcripts by making an appointment with an Academic Advisor in Room A120. The evaluation process is conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority being given to students who are nearing graduation.
  3. After the transfer credit evaluation has been completed, you must meet with your assigned College Advisor to review your course history.
  4. Transfer credit is posted to your Student Course History.
