Transferring from Another College

Students transferring to Erie Community College from another accredited institution of higher education may receive whole or partial credit for courses taken at that institution by requesting an evaluation of transfer credit. To arrange for an evaluation of transfer credit, an official college transcript must first be received by the admissions office. Students can then ask their department advisor to review all prior coursework. (Grades for credits transferred will not be computed into ECC's cumulative quality point average (QPA), and a grade of "C-" or higher must be earned to transfer credit.)

Associate Degree Requirements Summary

A degree candidate must meet the following requirements:

  • formally admitted to the college as a matriculated student
