  • Transfer Students

    Transfer Students: Those coming with prior attendance at another college

    Students who have earned credit at another college may be able to use that credit toward a degree at Prince George’s Community College regardless of the age of the courses taken. Students also may earn transfer credit from nontraditional sources, such as military or job training. See the section entitled Advanced Standing later in this chapter for more complete information.


    Admission Procedures

    1. Complete and submit the application for admission.
    2. Pay the nonrefundable $25.00 application fee.
    3. Complete and submit a Request for Evaluation of Credit  form available from the Admissions and Records Office on the Largo campus or from any of the other college sites.
      In addition to or instead of placement testing:
    4. Contact all previous institutions to have official copies of transcripts sent directly to the Admissions and Records Office for evaluation. This includes official records of other credit sources such as examinations or military experience.
    5. Provide unofficial copies of grade reports or transcripts to the academic adviser assisting with the first semester’s registration if an official evaluation has not yet been completed.
    6. Upon receipt of an e-mail from the college regarding Owl Link, the college’s Web-based computer system, sign in to Owl Link and become familiar with the services accessible through this system. The e-mail will contain full instructions.
      Note: Transcripts from non-United States colleges must be evaluated by an external evaluation service recognized by the college. See page 12 for more information.

    Students with Prior Degrees 

    Students who wish to take classes at the college but who have already earned an associate’s degree or higher from an accredited United States college or university are exempt from all placement tests. They also are free to enroll in a wide variety of courses without presenting proof of completion of course prerequisites. Students who enroll in a course or courses on the basis of their prior degree assume full responsibility for possession of the background skills and knowledge required for success in the course. Use of this prerequisite exemption may not be used later as grounds for an exceptional refund or as the basis for challenging a grade. The college reserves the right to limit the number of courses for which students may enroll using this exemption.
