Transfer Credit and Course Placement Equivalency Information

Students attending CCS should discuss credit options with an Academic Advisor before attempting to register credits at a guest institution or before completing alternative credit placement like CLEP testing. Verification of course equivalents are required and must be approved by the Registrar.

Students are responsible for submitting a final official transcript to place approved credits.
An “official” transcript is one that is sent directly from a school to a school in a sealed envelope and is required in order for you to receive transfer credits.

A college transcript hold will be placed for students who do not submit the official final transcript, preventing registration.
