Transfer Credit

Many students come to Gwinnett Tech with some college credit already under their belts. In fact, more than 30 percent of our students have one to three years of college credit and almost 10 percent have a bachelor's degree or higher.

The GTC Registrar's Office evaluates transfer credit after you are admitted to the college. GTC has a defined policy for the evaluation and awarding of college transfer credit, military transfer credit and advanced placement/standardized examinations credit. This policy reflects our mission to anticipate and exceed the educational and workforce training needs of our community. Our central focus is to prepare students educationally, personally and professionally for successful careers.

Our procedures ensure that only college level, degree/diploma-applicable course work is eligible for transfer credit; that military transfer credit is considered only for demonstrated competencies deemed comparable to college-level learning by the American Council on Education; that advanced placement and standardized examination credit demonstrate collegiate-level equivalency; and that such demonstrated competencies are comparable to GTC course learning outcomes and consistent with transfer credit policies and standards.

The following process outlines the steps taken to determine your exemption or transfer credit:

  • An official written record (transcript) is required from regionally accredited a post-secondary school which verifies a minimum grade of "C" in all courses for which you are seeking transfer credit to your program of study.

  • Official transcript with score(s) earned is required for Advanced Placement and Standardized Examinations from the College Board in order to receive exemption credit

  • An evaluation of courses for transfer credit is required. Comparable course-to-course transfer may be accepted based on demonstrated learning competencies consistent with GTC courses, program of study applicability, and credit requirements.

  • If a written course description or syllabus is needed, it will be your responsibility to obtain appropriate documentation.

  • Transfer credit for military service schools is awarded based on the American Council of Education (ACE) recommendations as listed in A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services and the approval by the appropriate department chairperson/program director.

  • Gwinnett Tech reserves the right to rescind previously awarded student course exemption under appropriate circumstances where conditions warrant.

  • Testing (written and performance) may be required. Other types of evaluations such as written testing and performance testing may be conducted on a program basis if, in the future, the need for such testing is indicated.

  • Notwithstanding the above steps, all transferred course credit is subject to review and final approval by the Program Director.

  • Students are required to take 40 percent or more of their program's course work credits from Gwinnett Tech if they wish to graduate from Gwinnett Tech. Online courses offered by Gwinnett Tech count towards that 40 percent; online courses offered by other technical colleges count as transfer credit.

In addition to receiving credits, courses can also transfer back out from Gwinnett Tech to a University System of Georgia institution (Georgia State and the University of Georgia, for example) or another technical college. Several freshman-level core courses are guaranteed to transfer to four-year colleges and universities throughout the state, and vice versa. (Read about the statewide transfer agreement and the courses that are included.)
