TCE Credit Evaluations

If you took a class at another institution this summer, please make note of the evaluation timeline. Due to the large volume of transcripts we receive during this time, it may take three or more weeks for transcripts to be evaluated. Transcripts are evaluated in the order in which they are received.

If you need to prove that you took your class as a prerequisite, please print off your grade report. Class year classifications will be updated and available to Financial Aid and other offices as transcripts are evaluated.
