Domestic Transcript Evaluation

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What is the purpose of a domestic transcript evaluation? 

  • Determines how many transfer units CCSF will accept from the student’s other institutions
  • Determines whether classes completed at CCSF and other institutions fulfill general education areas for the associate’s degree
  • The domestic transcript evaluation is separate from the international transcript evaluation. Please contact the graduation department at graduate@ccsf.edu or 415-239-3840 for questions regarding international transcripts.
  • The transcript evaluation does not determine prerequisites, major and transfer requirements. Students should schedule an appointment with a counselor to determine how a student should use their transcript(s) and to complete an educational plan

I want my credits tranferred in to meet prerequisites for classes I want to take. Do I complete the transcript evaluation?

Please note that the domestic transcript evaluation does not determine prerequisites. It is for the sole purpose of obtaining an associate's degree from CCSF.
