Transfer Students

Applicants who have attended a regionally accredited college or university must request that all colleges previously attended send official transcripts directly to the Midlands Technical College Admissions Office.

You may obtain a transcript request form online to request official transcripts from the college you previously attended or you may call 738-8324 to receive one or more by mail.

These transcripts will be reviewed to determine if the placement testing requirement will be waived and if transfer credit will be awarded. Applicants requesting transfer credit consideration of post-secondary course(s) from foreign institutions must obtain, at the applicant's expense, a course-by-course evaluation of the foreign course work. We recommend WES (World Education Services, Inc.), but any evaluator certified by the NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) is acceptable. The International Student Coordinator can supply you with forms from WES, or you can visit their website at www.wes.org. The following criteria are used to determine the acceptability of prior college course work for advanced standing:

  1. the final grade for the course(s) must be a "C" or better;
  2. the course(s) must have been taken at a regionally accredited institution; if from a nonregionally accredited foreign post-secondary institution, the courses must have been recommended by a NACES-member external evaluation service;
  3. the course(s) must be applicable to the program in which the student plans to enroll in order for the course to be considered for graduation;
  4. the course(s) must be college level. No course which is remedial/developmental in nature will be accepted; and
  5. credit will be granted only once for a given course.

To ensure the admissions application will be processed in time for registration, applications and all associated documentation, including transcripts and placement test scores must be received in the Admissions Office at least three weeks prior to the published application deadline for the term in which the student plans to enroll.
