8. How do I request transfer credits?

You will need to complete the Approval Form for Transfer of Credit form found on our website under Forms and Policies and return it to the Registrar’s Office with all appropriate signatures included (the signatures required on this form are all from Alma Faculty, Staff and Administration).

Next, contact the college you will be taking the course at and follow their procedures for Admission & Registration.

Once the course has been successfully completed, Alma College will need an Official Transcript sent from the college the course was taken to our Registrar’s Office.

***Only courses graded with a C or better will transfer into Alma. Refer to your Major department to determine if a grade higher than C is required for this particular course.***
