Transfer applicants should have transcripts from former colleges attended sent to the Office of the Registrar at the George A. Bee Administration Center at least one month prior to registration to ensure transfer credit availability. Students with any questions about the transferability of prior coursework should consult a counselor before registering.
OCC may declare a course equivalent when the knowledge and content between an OCC course and another institution's course are shown to be equal, and the two courses are within one credit hour of each other. The College Registrar is the arbiter of any equivalency dispute, and shall make the final decision when courses are part of the student’s general education requirements.
The College also accepts course credit from an accredited national, or professional body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as listed in the Directory of the American Council on Education (ACE). This consideration will extend to Armed Services programs and certain business and industry programs and certificates listed in the ACE Directory. Other credit may be considered. The College Registrar makes the final determination of acceptance.
Upon receipt of your transcript, Oakland Community College will evaluate the course work, post credit equivalencies as transfer credit on your Oakland Community College transcript, and email you that the evaluation has been completed.
