4.7.3 Transfer Credit

adopted: Oct-1993
last revised: Jun-2008

A student who has been officially accepted as a Richland Community College student may apply for and receive college credit for courses taken at an accredited postsecondary institution, as recognized by the Higher Education Directory, and which meet the course objectives of his/her academic program required for graduation at Richland Community College. Approved credit hours will be applied toward the total number of hours needed for the degree or certificate, provided the average grade for all such work is “C” or better. Transfer credit will not be included in computing the student’s grade point average at Richland. Approved credit hours will be recorded on the student’s academic record after a formal evaluation of the transfer work.
