At BTC we help students use previously earned credit to meet BTC testing, prerequisite, general academic course requirements, and sometimes program coursework.
Do I need a certain grade to transfer credits?
You must earn a "C" (2.0) or better for your course to be considered for transfer credit.
What courses are accepted for transfer?
Courses are considered for transfer credit when they match the content of courses required for BTC programs. Review a list of Course Equivalencies for our most common transfer institutions.
How do I request transfer credit?
Submit the Evaluation Request form. Arrange for the Admissions and Student Resource Center to receive your official transcript from the transfer institution. Or you may hand-deliver your official, sealed transcript to Admissions and Advising.
How long does transfer credit evaluation take?
Once your records and Evaluation Request form are received, processing takes approximately 10 to 14 business days. Processing may take longer during peak registration periods.
When should I request transfer credit evaluation?
We recommend you submit your records at least two months prior to the quarter you plan to attend.
Will my transfer grades affect my BTC GPA?
Your transfer credits will not be computed in your GPA.
What about other credit transfer options?
If you have taken and earned appropriate test scores through the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) test or International Baccalaureate (IB), or have earned a recognized professional or industry certification, your test scores and/or prior experience can be considered for BTC college credit.
