Transfer Credit: Provided certain criteria are met, the college routinely accepts credit from similarly accredited institutions. Creditsearned at institutions not so accredited can be evaluated provided detailed information regarding course content, texts, evaluation methods, faculty credentials, etc. are provided. Transfer credit evaluations are based on official transcripts from the previous institutions. No credit is given for courses with grades lower than ”C”. A transfer student may be advised to repeat a course if it is clearly to the student’s advantage in order to make satisfactory progress in the curriculum. Students with a minimum of 20 semester hours of transferred credit from a four-year college or university may be exempt from SDV 108.
Students with educational credentials from foreign countries who wish to receive transfer credit for any of that work must have a credit evaluation provided to the admissions office from a college-approved foreign credential evaluation service (PHCC catalog). The student must absorb all costs. PHCC faculty makes the final decisions on the granting of credit at PHCC. Questions about any of these policies may be referred to the Coordinator of Admissions and Records (276) 656-0311.
