Put your credits to use! If you have taken courses at another college or university, transfer your credits to MCC. The Maricopa County Community Colleges recognize that learning takes place in a variety of situations and circumstances. MCC awards credit for learning based on several criteria. If you have AP or CLEP exam scores, military training and experiences, or have participated in non-collegiate sponsored training programs, your learning could qualify as college credit.
After requesting your transcripts, you must submit a Request for Evaluation form before your transcript can be evaluated and course credits awarded. Click here to follow the three step process of transferring your credits to MCC.
Students who have had official transcripts sent directly to the Office of Admissions from regionally accredited institutions of higher education may be granted credit for college-level courses in which a "C" (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher grade has been received.
Credits from foreign institutions will be reviewed for acceptance. It is the student's responsibility to have all such transcripts translated into English and evaluated by an International Student Evaluation Service before submitting them to the college. International Credential Evaluation Agencies and Translators List. MCC does not endorse nor recommend any listed provider. This information is provided for informational purposes only.
Students may be awarded no more than 30 credit hours unless required by a specific program of study. Students must be currently enrolled in a credit course at MCC to apply for assessment of their prior learning. Find more information on Prior Learning Assessment in the College Catalog.
Students who require a course override to enroll in a class with a prerequisite requirement can submit an electronic Course Waiver Form and upload an unofficial transcript for review. If the incoming course is approved, MCC will automatically enroll you into the first available requested course chosen on the form. Answers will be sent to your MyMaricopa email and once enrolled, it is the student's responsibility to ensure payment is received or the class will be automatically withdrawn.
Note: MCC only accepts copies of unofficial transcripts; screenshots, pictures, etc. will be automatically rejected. Please allow three business days for an official decision. Additionally, student's are required to send their official transcript and request a transcript evaluation prior to registering for the following semester.
