Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Transfer of credit may be accepted from students who provide official transcripts with a current post date from institutions fully accredited by an approved national or regional accrediting agency, if these credits fit the program of studies selected at UACCB and the student received a grade of “C” or higher. The college will not accept developmental courses for transfer except when the course serves as a prerequisite or for placement. The College reserves the right to deny credit for certain classes that are more than five years old. Official transcripts should be submitted to the Admissions Office. Final approval of transfer credits rests with the Vice Chancellor for Academics. Transfer credit will be indicated on the student’s UACCB transcript; transfer credit is not calculated as a part of the student’s cumulative GPA. Documents received from other institutions are the property of UACCB and cannot be re-issued or copied. Transfer students from other institutions must meet the general admission requirements of UACCB. Transfer students seeking a UACCB degree must adhere to the graduation requirements.
