  • If you wish to receive credit for coursework completed at another institution, you must request your official college transcript be sent to Enrollment Services.

  • Please note: To earn a degree or certificate at Jefferson, a minimum of 50% of the required coursework must be completed through Jefferson Community College. 
  • Once admitted (matriculated), the transcript will be evaluated for credit. Transfer credit will not be used in calculation of the student grade point average. You will be notified once the evaluation is complete via your Jefferson email account and instructions will be provided for viewing the evaluation and credit.

    • Only coursework with a grade of “C” or above is eligible for transfer credit.
