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.

Mission Statement
The primary purpose for the IATCC is to promote active curricular and course selection, decision making, lifelong learning, and career development skills. Key services provided through the Center include computerized placement testing, academic counseling, online services for career exploration, online resources for career development, and online job posting. The Center also offers retention services such as the faculty-based Early Warning Program, Peer/Faculty Mentoring, and developing career and transfer specific courses aimed at "reality counseling" related to transfer and career planning issues.  The IATCC staff also provides assessment tools for career interest, personality characteristics and other special concerns.

A planned assessment program acquaints students with a general knowledge of their academic strengths and weaknesses. Students entering any degree, diploma, or certificate program are required to take the college placement test and are encouraged to do this as early as possible. Students must take these tests before enrolling in many courses such as mathematics, English, accounting, psychology, sociology, history, many computer classes, economics, biology courses, etc. Tests are administered in the Integrated Advising, Testing, and Career Center and at off-campus locations. Test results are carefully interpreted and discussed with each student and are used only for counselling and placement and do not affect college admission. Students who need developmental work to obtain appropriate skills and competencies will be advised of the requirements and availability of these courses. If you are a student with special needs, please contact Scott Guebert at in Student Support Services
