Students may be admitted with advanced standing by transfer from accredited colleges and universities and from previous programs taken at Mayland Community College. If the student is admitted, his or her record will be evaluated to determine the amount and type of credit to be transferred. However, at least one-fourth of the credit required for a degree must be completed at MCC.
Previous College Credit
Credits transferred from another school may be substituted for Mayland Community College courses if the content of the courses to be transferred is substantially the same as that of the required courses. At least one-fourth (25 percent) of the credits required for a degree, diploma, or certificate must be completed at MCC.
Credit from another regionally accredited institution with a grade below a “C-” will not be accepted.
Credits earned at another institution will not be considered in the computation of a student’s grade point average.
Evaluating and Awarding Credit
Students may be admitted with advanced standing by transfer from accredited colleges and universities and from previous programs taken at MCC.
The credit will only be considered from an official transcript from the other institution.
Questions regarding accreditation are answered using www.sacscoc.org/searchResults.asp.
Courses taken under the quarter system will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis and may be referred to the Division Dean for approval of use toward graduation.
Only grades of “C-” or higher will be considered for transfer credit.
Once the transcript is received, the Registrar will then perform a course-by-course comparison using the credit hours and the course content to determine whether or not the courses are equivalent. If there are questions after using the course descriptions, the Registrar will consult a faculty member from the area in question. Once it is determined that an equivalency exists, then the transfer credit is awarded and posted to the MCC transcript.
The student is notified by letter of any transfer credit awarded.
It should be noted that at least one-fourth (25 percent) of the credit required for a degree must be completed at Mayland Community College in order to graduate from MCC. This is verified by the Registrar when progress toward program completion is reviewed.
