Credits Transferred to TCC

Students may apply a maximum of 60 transferred in credits to their Tacoma Community College degree or certificate.

Tacoma Community College recognizes academic credits that are essentially equivalent in academic level and learning outcomes nature to credit (or courses) offered at TCC. Transfer credits earned at other colleges accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges or by other accrediting bodies are accepted by Tacoma Community College.

The college subscribes to the statewide Policy on Inter-College Transfer and Articulation among Washington Public Colleges and Universities, endorsed by the public colleges and universities of Washington and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, and adopted by the Higher Education Coordinating Board. The policy deals with the rights and responsibilities of students and the review and appeal process in transfer credit disputes. For more detailed information about transfer credits, contact the Enrollment Services office, Bldg. 7.

Students are encouraged to submit official transcripts from previous institutions attended as soon as they are admitted to the college. Credit evaluations usually take up to three months to complete. Transfer coursework will not be used to satisfy degree requirements until official transcripts have been evaluated.
