Transfer Credit Policy & Procedure
Transfer credits are evaluated and awarded to students once accepted into a program of study at Central Maine Community College. You may transfer course credit earned at another regionally accredited college or university to CMCC by furnishing us with an official transcript sent directly from that college/university (not a student copy) and a catalog description of your coursework from the institution that awarded the credit.
If the coursework you want to transfer is equivalent in nature and content to our requirements, and you have passed with a grade of "C" or better, we will award transfer credit.
We do not accept transfer credits exceeding seventy-five percent of total credits required for graduation from the program in which you are enrolled. CMCC reserves the right to test your skills or abilities prior to granting transfer credit.
Grades for courses that have been accepted as transfer credit are not computed in your grade point average. Your transfer credit will be received and approved by the Director of Registration and Records or her/his designee and may require consultation with the appropriate faculty. Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding your potential transfer credits.
Students requesting Veteran's Educational Assistance are required to have all previous post-secondary educational experience evaluated for possible transfer credit in order to be eligible for benefits.
How to Request Transfer Credits:
Follow the procedure outlined below in order for your request to receive prompt attention.
- Review Central Maine Community College's catalog requirements for the program in which you are enrolled and identify the comparable courses which you have completed at another college.
- Contact the Registrar's Office at the college you previously attended and ask them to send an official academic transcript of your coursework to the Registrar's Office at CMCC.
- Contact the Registrar's Office to verify we have received your official transcript. We may be able to let you know at this time if a class will transfer or not and how it will transfer. Complicated transcripts may take additional time.
- After your request has been evaluated, we will send you a copy of the results.
If you have questions about any of these policies or procedures, or need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to call, write or e-mail the Registrar's Office.
