Articulation and Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Official transcripts for all degree-seeking students will be articulated in the Admissions and Records Office. Once the transfer articulation has been completed, students will be notified through their CCC student email account.  

Acceptance of transferable credit is based on the following criteria: Credit is accepted for equivalent college work from institutions accredited by a regional collegiate accrediting body or whose accreditation is from an accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Non-equivalent courses include, but are not limited to, denominational religion courses and basic skills courses (developmental or remedial). Technical/occupational/vocational courses may be considered for credit in the Associate of General Studies degree plan if the sending institution is accredited by a CHEA recognized accrediting body.

For more information about articuation and acceptance of transfer credit, please visit our online course catalog.


Commencement is held each year at the end of the spring semester. Learn more about graduation.
