Additional Notes

  • If you have attended an institution outside of the United States, the College requires and official course-by-course evaluation be submitted from World Education Services (WES) or another evaluation service which is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), in order to determine if transfer credit can be awarded.
  • If you previously attended a non-collegiate education program that has been articulated through the American Council on Education (ACE), you should also submit that transcript for evaluation.

Step 2

Check your Middlesex County College Outlook email account for updates regarding your transfer credits.

  • Please see MyMCC to claim your NetID if you have not already done so, and/or log into your Outlook account. If additional information, such as a course syllabus, is required in order to determine a course’s equivalency, you will be contact via email for this information.
  • Once transfer credit has been awarded you will receive an email notice with your next steps in the enrollment process.
  • During peak times in the enrollment cycle, there may be longer processing times in awarding transfer credits. You will receive an update regarding your transfer credit in approximately ten business days from when the student records evaluator receives your transcript. This processing time will be much shorter if you are transferring from an institution that already has established course equivalencies.

Step 3

Meet with an Academic Advisor and register for classes.

  • After you receive an email notice stating that your transcripts have been evaluated, you can review this information on the My Progress/Self-Service webpage. For step by step instructions, please see this guide.
  • Please meet with an academic advisor to create an academic plan and register for classes.

FAQs

This question may be best answered during your meeting with an academic advisor in West Hall. A combination of test scores and transcripts from both high school and college may be needed to determine what placement tests are required if you did not receive certain transfer credits.

  • Courses must have a letter grade of “C” or higher awarded on the transcript. No transfer credit will be awarded for courses that have been taken on a Pass/Fail basis.
  • Courses are subject to review after time a significant amount of time has passed since the course was completed. Math, science and computer science courses are subject to review after five years and all other courses are subject to review after ten years.
  • Not all courses taken at other institutions are equivalent to courses offered here at Middlesex County College. If there is not an equivalent MCC course that matches in the content and credit hours to the already completed course, transfer elective credit may be awarded. If the transfer elective credits do not fit into the general education degree requirements, then those credits may be used in another elective category if there is one in your degree program.
