GTCC accepts credits earned in academic programs from colleges and universities accredited by one of the following regional Associations of Colleges and Schools – Middle States, North Central, New England, Northwest, Southern, or Western.
As part of the application process, students should submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. Military and veteran students should also submit their Joint Service Transcript and/or Community College of the Air Force Transcript. Enrollment Services will determine the appropriate course equivalency for transfer credits. Credits will be evaluated on a course by course basis. If there is a question about the equivalence of a course being considered for transfer, Enrollment Services may require that the student supplies additional documents such as a college catalog, course syllabus, or textbook list in order to determine whether credit should be awarded.
Students must have earned a grade of C or higher to receive transfer credit. Some transfer courses may require departmental approval before being accepted toward a program. If the department chair requires an exam to validate transfer credit, an exam grade of at least a C is required. Transfer GPA is not calculated or brought into the GTCC record but is counted in the financial aid GPA calculation.
Transfer credit from international colleges is awarded on a case-by-case basis and may require department chair validation. Students are advised to submit their record of courses to an agency recognized by NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluating Services) for an international evaluation. www.naces.org
Students should send official international transcript evaluations to:
Guilford Technical Community College
P.O. Box 309
Jamestown, NC 27282
To receive a degree from GTCC, the student must earn at GTCC one-fourth of the required hours in the degree program and one-third of the major course work applicable to graduation. Some programs may have time limits for transfer of certain courses.
