Steps to Transfer Credit

Step One:

Request that an official transcript of your course(s) completed at Theoria Technical College be sent to the college or university of your choice. 

Step Two:

Upon application to a college/university, meet with an academic advisor and review your transcript. Ask about their PLA (prior learning assessment) process or policies. Tell them about the NCCRS Online directory should they need detailed information about the course and credit recommendations.

Step Three:

If you encounter problems with your transfer credit request, please submit a Request for Assistance Form so NCCRS can advocate on your behalf.

 

 

 

How Colleges Decide to Grant Transfer Credit

  1. Residency Requirements: Most colleges require students to complete a specific number of credits from their institution in order to be granted a degree there. Many four-year colleges require students to take up to 60 credits at their college toward a 120 credit baccalaureate degree, so they will not grant more than 60 transfer credits.

  2. Course or Program of Study: The courses students are seeking transfer credit for should align with those offered at the college in keeping with the requirements of the program or major the student is pursuing. For example, if a student wants to enroll in a dentistry program, chances are that specialty courses in dramatic arts or fire science may not be granted transfer credit because they don't fit the program of study.

  3. Grades and Course Level: Generally, students must earn at least a C (70%) or above to receive transfer credit for any given course, although some colleges may require a B or higher. Likewise, a lower-level English course will not fulfill the requirement of an upper-level English course. Remedial courses generally do not warrant any transfer credit.

  4. Accreditation: Colleges and Universities may decide to accept only those credits earned at a regionally accredited institution, although the US Department of Education recognizes national accrediting agencies as well.

  5. You may file an appeal at the college if you are denied credit. Be sure to ask your advisor or department chairperson for a copy of the appeal process. If you need assistance with transfer credit for your NCCRS evaluated courses, fill out a Request for Assistance.

Are our units transferrable to community colleges and/or universities?

 

That is decided by the college you are transferring to.  It is an industrywide policy that whether any colleges units can be transferred to another college is decided not by the college issuing the units but by the college accepting them.  NCCRS recommended transfer units courses are just that, they are recommended, and over 1,500 colleges and universities indicated a willingness to accept recommended courses that have been evaluated by NCCRS, but the college admitting you will decide whether or not to accept them.  The good thing for you is that should you have any challenge with them recognizing our NCCRS evaluated courses (see the course list above). you have an advocate on your side.  NCCRS will advocate on behalf of our students based on the relationship NCCRS has with the college.
