- North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
- Northwest Commission of Colleges and Schools
- Southern Association of Colleges and Schools

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.
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 will not be awarded for computer related courses that are 10 years or older.
Students that have attended a college or university outside of the United States must have their transcripts translated and evaluated by a NACES member before Forsyth Tech will review them for possible transfer credit.Naces.org
