Enrollment Checklist for Transfer Students

Transcript Evaluation

As part of the admissions process, transfer students are required to submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges/universities to the Student Record's Office. To be considered official, the transcript must come directly from the previously attended college in a sealed envelope. Grade reports, diplomas, etc. are not considered official transcripts. Additionally, any transcript that has been previously opened before being submitted to the Record's Office is not considered official.

Once the Record's Office receives an official transfer transcript, their staff will conduct a transcript evaluation to determine what classes for which we can award transfer credit. Transfer credit is generally awarded when coursework previously taken is similar to a course offered at Terra State. In some cases, students may be asked to submit copies of syllabi from previously taken courses to determine appropriate transferability.

Once the transcript evaluation has occurred, you will receive a letter with a list of the transfer credit we have awarded. At that point, you are able to work with an academic advisor to determine if the placement assessment is necessary, receive course recommendations for your first semester at Terra State, and register to attend a required orientation session.
