Upon receipt of official documents and transcripts, college-level course work from accredited colleges or universities is evaluated for transfer credit by a Prior Learning Assessment Advisor. Transfer credit is not awarded for courses that are remedial by definition of the transferring institution, or equivalent to remedial courses taught through Colorado Technical University. Transcripts and records presented for evaluation become part of the student’s permanent record. Students wishing to determine the receipt status of official transcripts may contact the Registrar’s Office for additional information.
The process of evaluating international transcripts differs significantly from the process of evaluating domestic (U.S) transcripts. International transcripts must be translated to English and may require official evaluation by an accepted agency recognized by NACES or AACRAO, at the student’s expense. Students may be admitted provisionally, as a non-regular student, pending the receipt of official evaluations. Students may consult with their respective Prior Learning Assessment Specialist to gain additional information about the international credential evaluation process.
