Advanced Standing Coordinators
How much of your TTC program credit can come from credits earned at other institutions?
If you earned credit hours from other institutions or agencies, you may fulfill up to 75 percent of program requirements through advanced standing.
TTC awards the following types of advanced standing credit:
- College Transfer Credit
You may receive transfer credit for courses successfully completed at regionally accredited colleges and universities. In awarding transfer credit, TTC considers equivalency of course content, quality, level, hours and program relevance. The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers’ "Transfer Credit Practices of Educational Institutions" serves as a guide for acceptance of transfer credit.
For transfer credits to be considered, you must have official transcripts of previous college work sent to TTC’s Admissions Office, and you may be asked to provide additional documentation. TTC awards transfer credit only when the grade is C- or higher or when the sending institution confirms that the grade (P for example) is equivalent to a C- or higher. Transfer credit will not be included in the calculation of your GPA at TTC.
Transfer credit and Advanced Standing awards can be reviewed in my.tridenttech.edu. Select Admission Information under the TTC Express nav bar on the left, then select Applicant Information. Under My Profile, you will see a list of the schools you have attended, whether a transcript has been received from any of the schools and the evalation status of transcripts received. Below the school listing, click Academic Credit to see the results of the transcript evaluation.
Military Transcript Information
TTC may award credit for selected formal military coursework and training from transcripts provided by the different branches of service. TTC uses the credit recommendations of the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Guide for the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services to evaluate both military classroom and experiential training.
