A transfer student is one who has taken college course work after high school graduation and can be reviewed in 1 of 2 ways:
·13 or more college credits and with review of high school transcript/GED submission
·30 or more college credits without submission of high school transcript/GED
Once a student is admitted, an official transfer credit evaluation will be completed and the student will be able to access their Degree Audit Report in the MyUCCS portal.
