Transfer in Courses to Get Credit

​To transfer in coursework taken at other institutions, official college transcripts must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at the City College you intend to enroll at.            

Transfer credits help you register for courses and may be​ used to​ help you meet the requirements for an associate degree or certificate program at the City Colleges of Chicago (CC​​C). ​​ ​​ ​  ​ ​​ ​​​           

Transfer Credit Gene​ra​l Guidelines

  • Course credits are accepted from regionally accredited institutions
  • Only final grades of "C-" or higher a​re transferable
  • Equivalent to course​s in our current Academic Catalog

Admitted stu​​dents, currently enrolled students, and former students at CCC may submit official college transcripts ​for ​evaluations. Transfer credit is processed for students who are admitted, those students who are currently enrolled, or those students who have previously attended CCC.      

Transferred course grades are not reflected in your CCC grade point average (GPA). However, the courses transferred in will be listed on your CCC student history under transfer credit. NOTE: evaluations can only be completed based upon official college transcripts.                                


We encourage you to meet with your College Advisor to find out how your transfer credit can help you select the courses you register for, and how transfer credit can be used toward completing a program at CCC.​​​ ​​​​​​
