2020-2022 Catalog and Student Handbook

Receiving Transferred Credits

Transfer credits from other accredited post-secondary institutions will be individually evaluated to determine courses needed to ensure students complete all requirements to earn a Mitchell Technical certificate, diploma or degree. A transfer student may have previous coursework accepted to fulfill Mitchell Tech course and graduation requirements according to the following criteria:

  1. Official transcripts shall be submitted for use in assessing courses and credits for transfer from accredited institutions. It is the student’s responsibility to have his or her transcript validated by the Registrar.
  2. A grade of C or better (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) shall be required in each course accepted in transfer. Transfer credits do not count toward a cumulative GPA. The grade recorded on the student’s academic record will be “CR” (credit). Courses in the major area of study completed more than five years previously may not be accepted for transfer.
  3. Technical courses shall be reviewed by the appropriate department(s) and the Registrar to determine course equivalence and acceptance. Partial credit may be awarded for courses that do not meet all competencies of an Mitchell Tech course. Courses outside of Mitchell Tech’s requirements will not be accepted for transfer.
  4. The Registrar will determine course equivalencies to meet Mitchell Tech’s general education requirements.
  5. Transfer students must complete a minimum of 25% of their coursework credits at Mitchell Tech to earn a degree, diploma, or certificate.
  6. To transfer credit, a student must be accepted before credits will be transcribed.
