Academic coursework from Accredited Texas Public Institutions will be added to the Angelina College transcript. Not all Workforce Education courses are transferable from college to college.
Academic coursework from Accredited Out-of-state and/or Private Colleges will be added to the AC transcript. Course descriptions/syllabi must be provided to the Office of Admissions for evaluation. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the necessary documentation. Courses are evaluated by Associate Deans to determine if the transfer course(s) are equivalent to Angelina College coursework. This process can take several weeks.
Coursework from a Technical, Career or Trade School that is not regionally accredited will not be added to the transcript, but the student might petition for credit by exam through the AC Testing Office.
Transfer coursework will not calculate into the cumulative GPA.
Courses that do not have an equivalency, may be used as an elective or substituted for a required course with the written permission of the Associate Dean in which your major is located.
Note: Only freshman and sophomore level courses will transfer to AC. These courses normally start with a “1” or “2”.
Coursework that is measured in quarter hours is NOT equivalent to semester credit hours. It requires 5 quarter hours to earn 3 semester credit hours. 5 QH = 3 1/3 SCH
Any student, 18 years of age or older, may audit a course by completing the appropriate form in the Office of Admissions prior to the official census date of the semester (see Academic Calendar). The auditing student may then attend classes but is generally not required to take examinations and is not entitled to earn credit for the audited course. The admission process and tuition and fees are the same for auditing as those for credit enrollment. Once a student chooses to audit a course, they cannot later ask to be changed to receive credit.
