As a transfer student, we understand that you want to apply as much credit as possible to the degree program that you end up choosing at Monroe. We want to help. Monroe College’s transfer policy provides an opportunity for students with various prior educational and life experiences to receive transfer credit for their program of study. Someone in our admissions office can conduct an unofficial transfer evaluation for you if you provide transcripts from your prior institution(s).
Institutions must have one of the following accreditations: regional; national, by one of the national accrediting agencies recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Commission on Higher Education; or be listed in the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education (AIPE). International students may be required to have their transcripts evaluated by an evaluation agency such as the World Education Services, the Globe Evaluation Services or an evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credentials Evaluations Services (NACES), to determine the level of the work completed, the subject matter, number of equivalent credits and grade.
There are many ways prospective students may have earned credit. The following are ways that students can earn transfer credits/advanced standing.
