Q. Do I still have to submit an application if I am transferring from another college?
A. Yes. The steps you will take to apply will be mostly the same as they would be for a freshman student, except that you will also need to submit official transcripts from any other post-secondary institutions you’ve attended.
Q. Will all of my credits transfer to ECC?
A. Courses are evaluated on a case-by-base basis. If you’re transferring from another accredited post-secondary institution, you may receive credit at ECC for equivalent classes in general requirements or your chosen field of study. Completed courses must have been completed with at least a “C” grade to be transferable. In order to graduate, at least half of the credits required for your degree must be from courses taken at ECC.
Q. How do I know what courses have been transferred for credit?
A. You will be notified in writing about specifically what credits have been accepted, and what ECC courses they are equivalent to. To complete the transfer process, students must bring the evaluation document to their academic advisor.
Q. What is the deadline for submitting transcripts?
A. To have your official evaluation prior to registration, the Enrollment Services Express Center must receive your Official College Transcript and Application for Admission by the deadline dates.
- Fall Semester: July 5
- Spring Semester: November 1
- Summer 1 & 2 Terms: March 15
Q. Do I have to take a placement exam?
A. If you are transferring with applicable credits in college-level mathematics and English composition already completed, you are not required to take the placement exam.
Q. Can I transfer credits from a university outside the United States?
A. Yes! To transfer credits, you will need to submit your official transcript and a certified English translation (if necessary) to a transcript evaluation service. This service will send the transcript to ECC so we can determine which credits are transferable. Here are the evaluation services available to contact.
Q. Can I get my transcript back after sending it to ECC?
A. No. Transcripts sent to ECC are kept on file, and cannot be returned.
