Transfer to MCC

Students who are currently pursuing a degree at MCC and who are interested in receiving credit for course work from another accredited institution, or through CLEP (College Level Examination Program), must have a sealed, official college transcript sent to:

Manchester Community College Admissions Office
Great Path, MS# 12
P.O. Box 1046
Manchester, CT 06045-1046.

An official transfer credit evaluation, based on your program of study/major, will be completed only after you have been accepted and matriculated into the college.

Transfer credit may be granted for comparable courses completed at accredited colleges and universities in which a student has received a grade of “C-” or better. Degree credit shall be granted for all credit courses that are applicable to the objectives of, or equivalent to the course requirements of, the degree program at Manchester Community College in which the transferring student is enrolled.

For transfer equivalency information, please refer to the Transfer Services webpage.

Regardless of the number of transfer credits that are accepted from other colleges, a student must complete at least 25 percent of the minimum credit requirements for their program of study at MCC.

Transcripts will be evaluated on a rolling basis. You may view your transfer credits on myCommNet. Login, go to “Banner Student & Faculty Self-Service”, select “Student Records”, select “Grades/Registration History”.

Transcript evaluations can be done in our office on a walk-in, first come, first serve basis. We hope that this service will provide prospective transfer students with appropriate information to facilitate enrollment at MCC. Students should bring the preliminary evaluation when meeting with an advisor and/or present to the Registrar’s office to register for classes.

Students who are attending, or have attended, a college or university and are interested in registering at MCC need only submit proof of prior college coursework (an unofficial transcript) at the time of registration as proof of having met course prerequisites. It is not necessary to submit an official college transcript if a student is not pursuing a degree or certificate program at MCC.

Academic advisement for course and program selection is available through Advising and Counseling Services, SSC L108 or you can call 860-512-3320 to schedule an appointment. Students may also contact the Program Coordinator or appropriate faculty member for advising and program planning.


Advanced Placement Program

Advanced placement course credits may be granted to entering students on the basis of scores on the College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Examination. Scores of 3,  4 and 5 are granted degree credit for equivalent courses as determined by academic divisions. Please visit the College Board AP Test website for additional information. All score reports must be submitted to the Admissions Office. For questions pertaining to specific courses, please call the appropriate academic division.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

MCC follows the credit-granting CLEP scores recommended by the American Council on Education for transfer. An inventory of CLEP exams and credit granting recommendations are available on the College Board website. Please visit this website for CLEP testing information, score reports, and the location of testing centers. MCC is not a CLEP testing center. Students are responsible for having CLEP scores sent to the Admissions office for an evaluation.
