TRANSCRIPT CREDIT PROCEDURES
Students submitting transcripts from colleges or universities can submit official transcripts to the appropriate Registrar’s Office where the student intends to register and/or request a transcript evaluation to receive transfer credit. Please note, official transcripts are required to receive transfer credit. Students transferring credit to City Colleges of Chicago are required to submit official college transcripts reflecting all college credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions previously attended.
Note: unofficial transcripts may be submitted to complete the admission process, but they will not be evaluated for transfer credits and official transcripts will still be required for future enrollment and transfer credit evaluation.
