Transfer Credit/Evaluation

The Admissions/Records Office will evaluate transcripts from other regionally accredited post-secondary institutions for possible transfer credit after the Admissions Office has approved your application and received your official transcripts.

Transcripts must be received from institutions/colleges that are regionally accredited by one of the following:

  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools
  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges
  • North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Northwest Commission of Colleges and Schools
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges

Determination of Course Equivalencies

Your evaluation will be completed based on your program of study.

In order to receive transfer credit for a course the course at your previous college must be comparable in content, objective, quality, and credit hours to those offered at Forsyth Tech.

You must have made a C or better in the course that is being considered for transfer credit. 

Credit for remedial courses are awarded based on college level English and/or Math courses taken at previous school.

When the granting of transfer credit is in question, the student may be asked for additional documentation such as course description or course syllabus.

Credits transferred from other institutions/colleges will be reflected on students’ transcripts as hours earned and will not be used in the computation of grade point average.  A grade of TR will be granted to show that the course was transferred from another college.

Credit Hour Equivalencies

Forsyth Tech is on the semester system.  If the college you attended is/was on the quarter system.  Your credit hours for the class will have to be converted to semester hours using a conversion factor.

Example:  You have a 3 quarter hour class at your previous college.  To convert this course to semester hours the 3 hours is divided by 1.5 which equals 2.00 semester hours.  If this course is being considered for a 3 credit hour Forsyth Tech course we would not be able to transfer this course in because the hours would not match.

Transfer Credit Limit

To graduate from Forsyth Tech you are required to complete a minimum of 25 percent of the required course work at Forsyth Tech.

Transfer Credit Course Time Limitations

Transfer credit will not be awarded for computer related courses that are 10 years or older.

International Transcripts

Students that have attended a college or university outside of the United States must have their transcripts translated and evaluated by a NACES member (www.naces.org) before Forsyth Tech will review them for possible transfer credit.

Commencement

Forsyth Technical Community College has adopted an Automatic Graduation process which will not require students to submit an Intent to Graduate form. Graduation eligibility is determined by the Registrar’s office. Students will be granted the certificate(s) and/or diploma(s) applicable while pursuing their Associate degree.
Forsyth Technical Community College will process your graduation for you. To ensure you receive credit for all your hard work, when your program evaluation, which is accessible through my.forsythtech.edu, indicates that you have completed all degree requirements, your official Forsyth Technical Community College transcript will be updated to reflect that you have graduated.

If you are eligible for graduation through this automatic process, you will receive communication from the Admissions/Records Office notifying you of your graduation eligibility and informing you about the process to receive your degree and attend the graduation ceremony through your school-issued email. If you have questions about this process, please contact records@forsythtech.edu.

Forsyth Tech reserves the right to publish all graduate names in the commencement program.
