TRANSCRIPT CREDIT PROCEDURES        

Students submitting transcripts from colleges or universities can submit official transcripts to the appropriate Registrar’s Office where the student intends to register and/or request a transcript evaluation to receive transfer credit.  Please note, official transcripts are required to receive transfer credit.  Students transferring credit to City Colleges of Chicago are required to submit official college transcripts reflecting all college credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions previously attended.

Note: if unofficial transcripts are submitted as part of the admission process, they will not be evaluated for transfer credits and official transcripts will still be required for future enrollment and transfer credit evaluation.

If you meet one of the criteria below, you can apply for a transcript waiver which, if approved, will allow you to register for classes without submitting an official transcript.

  • Your transcript is from a non-regionally accredited college/university.
  • You did not complete any college credit at your college/university (withdrawal) as validated by an unofficial transcript.
  • You did not earn any transferable grades (A, B, or Cs) at your college/university as validated by an unofficial transcript.
  • Your official transcript cannot be obtained due to college/university closing or natural disaster.
  • You have proof your official college transcript was sent to CCC. An unofficial transcript must be submitted in the interim.
  • You cannot obtain an official college transcript due to prior debt, and you have proof of being enrolled in a payment plan or of a recent payment transaction to that institution. However, you agree to submit an official transcript to CCC once your debt is cleared.
  • You have proof of an official international college/university transcript evaluation order (within the past 30 days).
  • You have earned multiple degrees and do not need to submit non-relevant college/university transcripts such as a masters or doctorate degree. Only undergraduate college work is required via official college transcript(s).

If you think that one of the above criteria applies to you, please complete the transcript waiver form Official_College_Transcript_Waiver_Form_Final [PDF]. If you have any questions, contact your Admissions Office.​
