Credit Evaluation for Transfer Students

TMCC General Image

Official Evaluation Process

Currently admitted TMCC students may transfer credits to TMCC by submitting a Credit Evaluation for Transfer Students. Sending official transcripts from previous institutions to Admissions and Records and submitting the Credit Evaluation for Transfer Students form is the only way to have your transfer credit evaluated officially and added to your MyTMCC account. 

Unofficial Review Process

Transfer courses previously accepted by TMCC are added to a database, which you may access through MyTMCC for planning purposes only. While waiting for Admissions and Records to complete the official evaluation, you may complete the following process with the understanding that transfer credits are not added to your record until Admissions and Records reviews and apply your coursework.
