Transfer Credit to Chatfield from another institution
Students wishing to transfer credit earned at another regionally accredited academic institution must submit an official transcript to the Registrar’s Office for evaluation.  The student must have earned a grade C or higher for a class to be considered for transfer credit.  The Registrar’s Office will evaluate each transcript and award credit for equivalent Chatfield courses on a case-by-case basis.  Grades earned for transfer credit will be printed on a student’s Chatfield transcript, but will not be calculated into the student’s cumulative GPA. In order to receive a Chatfield College of Associate of Arts degree, students must complete the last 17 credit hours at Chatfield.  (Chatfield Student Handbook, page 37)
