Transfer Credits

Receive credit for work you’ve done at other schools. Use these steps to transfer credits: 

  1. Send Transcripts: Have your previous school mail official transcripts to CCC Student Records.
  2. Time Frame: Registered students will have their transcripts evaluated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Turn around time depends on the volume of transcripts and factors such as end of the term awarding. 
  3. Prerequisites: If you have a prerequisite for a class (not Writing or Math) on a previous transcript, please contact the Registrar’s Office and send an official transcript to CCC.
  4. Watch your Student Email: You will receive an email when the evaluation is complete.

For prior credits to be accepted, they must meet the following criteria: 


  • Courses must be passed with grade C or better.
  • Pass & Satisfactory grades are transferable. 
  • We evaluate lower division collegiate (LDC) coursework.
  • We evaluate upper division coursework on a case-by-case basis.
  • Career Technical coursework (CTE) may transfer. 
  • If you are Non-Degree seeking, we will only transfer credits needed to meet standard prerequisites, or other commonly used preparatory coursework in a subject (e.g. Biology).
  • Nursing evaluation- See below
  • Non-U.S. Transcripts- See below
  • Credits from non-regionally accredited schools will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Syllabi will be required for evaluation. Transfer credit is not guaranteed.

We will only evaluate prerequisite/required preparatory courses, and therefore consider this process a pre-evaluation.

**Please allow 4 weeks for an evaluation to be completed.

If your prior institution is in Oregon, you can use this chart to determine how your courses will translate at CCC. 

If your prior institution is in Washington, you can use this chart to determine how your courses will translate at CCC.

If you have Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) credits, please see the following charts for how your credits can be applied at CCC.

For AP, IB, or CLEP credit, we will need official transcripts from either the IBO or College Board. We will not accept these credits from High School transcripts. 

Please see the following resources for information on sending your results to CCC.

Once the evaluation is complete, your Degree Audit in the student portal will show transferred courses. If you don't see a course, please reach out to the Registrar's office.


Why are some of my transfer courses listed as 9999, 199, 100T or 200T? 

If there isn't an equivalent course at CCC, we assigned 9999, 199, 100T or 200T in the closest subject area. Often, these courses still meet specific CCC degree requirements. If the designation is 9999, it is a Career Technical course.


Do my transferred grades affect my GPA? 

Transfer grades are not included in your GPA on CCC transcripts.

Certificate programs affiliated with professional associations, trade organizations, or private vendors may be considered for credit at CCC. CCC may award credit based on licensure or certification by approval from appropriate departments. However, CCC cannot guarantee that credit will be awarded for all certificate programs. 

  • CDA 
  • CPR 
  • Journeyman 
  • Professional licensure

Clatsop Community College grants up to 24 credit hours from JST, Joint Service Transcript. The American Council on Education (ACE) reviews and recommends credit for college level credit based on workforce training, military training or occupations, and other sources of learning outside the college classroom, such as national exams and certifications. CCC may award credit based on these ACE recommendations as well as approval from appropriate departments. However, CCC cannot guarantee that credit will be awarded for all ACE.

All credits will be brought in with a 'P' grade and will count toward the limit of Pass grades allowed for a degree.

If you have experience that aligns with a course at CCC, you may be eligible for an assessment for college credit. Assessment methods vary, and may take the form of a portfolio, an exam, or a demonstration of knowledge and skills. If you have questions not addressed on this page, contact

Credit issued directly by a non-U.S. university or college must be evaluated by an outside agency prior to being considered for transfer by Clatsop Community College. Official determination will be made regarding transfer eligibility or total credit awarded until the course has been completed and the evaluation agency has rendered its report. Student will choose an agency from The National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) to evaluate the institution and verify that it is equivalent to a regionally accredited U.S. institution, evaluate the course(s) to determine the converted U.S. equivalent credit and letter grade. Upon receipt of this evaluation, Clatsop Community College will evaluate the credit for transfer. The cost for evaluation is borne by the student.
