A: Most college-level courses from a regionally accredited institution that apply to your degree program at RCSJ, with a grade of “C” or higher will be accepted. Science courses that are older than 5 years may not be used to satisfy the requirements for some Health Science selective admissions programs.

Credit hours for courses taken must also match the credit hours of the applicable course at RCSJ. It is advised that you meet with your Academic Advisor to review how any transferred credits may be used towards your degree requirements.

Q: I earned credits at a business/trade school or institution that was not regionally accredited. Will those credits transfer?

A: We are not able to accept course credits from certificate granting institutions such as business, technical or vocational institutions, unless the institution and course have been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) and have received an ACE course number.
