Transfer Course Expiration
MCC will take course in transfer from U.S. colleges and universities* accredited by the Higher Learning Commission or one of the other regional accrediting bodies. Students must achieve a grade of C or better in transfer courses. The transfer course must have an equivalent course at MCC. Courses without equivalents may transfer in as elective credit. Zero-series courses (those with a course code below 100) do not transfer toward degree credit requirements.
Students/counselors may request a Transfer Credit review if they feel the student has retained the knowledge from an expired course, or the student has been working in a field which requires they utilize skills they obtained in an expired course.
*Certain journeyman and current cosmetology licensing may equate to transfer credit.

Expire one year after completion at a previous institution. Some courses with pre-nursing certificate programs may have expiration dates specific to the nursing program.
