Transfer Credit

Transfer Credit to MACC

Transfer credit from any post-secondary institution will be considered if regional, national, professional and/or specialized accreditation has been awarded and recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The Higher Education Directory (HED) lists the accredited, degree-granting institutions of post-secondary education in the United States and its outlying areas.


Transfer Evaluation

Based on guidelines for student transfer and articulation among Public Missouri Colleges and Universities (CBHE, 1987), in most cases, MACC will accept all Associate degrees and/or Bachelor degrees as meeting all general education core requirements for the AAS/AA/AAT degrees only. Exceptions would be the ADN and AADN degrees and PN Certificate, which have specified time limits, and the A.S. degree, which has many specified core requirements. In both cores, the Registrar will evaluate courses individually regardless of whether or not a degree was awarded.

Transfer credit will only be considered from schools that are listed in the Higher Education Directory.

In general, college courses are not accepted from another college/university if taken at the junior/senior level. The only exception to this would be courses that have a direct equivalent to one of our classes (i.e. Accounting Principles is sometimes taught at the 300-level at area universities). Additionally, students transferring a “D” grade will be considered for credit by MACC.

Degree requirements are determined by the catalog in place at the time of initial enrollment.

Physiology must be taken within the last five (5) years of the date the student enrolls in the PN program.  In addition, Microbiology and Physiology must be taken within the last five (5) years of the date the student enrolls in the ADN and AADN programs. If not, the credit will not apply toward the degree/certificate (ADN or PN). This includes science courses taken at MACC.

State Technical College of Missouri course work will be evaluated for credit if taken during the summer 1997 semester or thereafter.


CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) Credit  (Click here for equivalenices) 

CLEP credit will not be given for Composition (LAL102). CLEP credit in science and PSY101 courses will not be awarded to students pursuing a degree/credit in the ADN/PN programs.


Military Transcript Evaluation Procedure 

All veterans who provide a DDT214 (Basic Training) or INOBE will be awarded 2 Physical Education (activity) credits.

Additionally, all military transcripts, which are requested by a veteran (admitted MACC student) to be evaluated, must be submitted to the Registrar. If possible, a veteran should submit a military transcript to the Registrar, which is available on ANY veteran who attended military service from 1985 to present.

If the veteran (student) is a Technical/Career major, the transcript/military records will be forwarded to the Dean of Technical/Career Education. Veterans seeking an AA/AS/AAT degree will have their evaluation completed by the Registrar (or Dean of Student Services). Evaluations will only be completed on veterans (students) who have a declared major.


Transfer Credit to Other Institutions

Educational requirements vary from one institution to another. For this reason, it is extremely important that students who plan to transfer to another institution work closely with the Office of Student Services in planning their course schedule. Individual contact with college representatives from the receiving institution and campus visits are important to prepare for a smooth transition. Transfer problems can be minimized if special consideration is given when preparing a class schedule.
