Transfer Students

A “transfer student” is a student who has attended another college or university prior to enrolling at Calhoun. This includes students who have earned a B.S./B.A. degree or higher. For unconditional admission and to be classified as degree eligible, applicants must have on file at the institution a completed application for admission, signature form (in-state residency certification), primary form of identification, official high school transcript or GED certificate, and official transcripts from all previously attended post-secondary institutions.

NOTE:  A transfer student who is not seeking a degree from Calhoun Community College and has earned a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university is only required to submit an official transcript from the degree granting institution. If a student with a Bachelor’s degree wishes to have the transcript evaluated for transfer credit, official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records prior to the evaluation.

Transfer students may be conditionally admitted pending receipt of official transcripts. Failure to submit official transcripts by the end of the first semester of enrollment will prevent future registration and release of official Calhoun transcripts. Transfer students with a conditional admission status will not receive federal financial aid.

Students on academic suspension must file a written appeal directly to the Director of Admissions and College Registrar for submission to the Suspension Appeals Committee. Appeals for admission should be submitted at least thirty days prior to the intended term of enrollment. Decisions of the Suspension Appeals Committee are final.

Official high school transcripts, as well as all college transcripts must be received in the Admissions and Records office prior to students being awarded financial aid.

Please be advised transcripts are considered official if they are:

  • Mailed directly from the high school and/or college or university to Calhoun Community College:

    Calhoun Community College
    Attn: Admissions Office
    PO Box 2216
    Decatur, AL 35609

  • Sent electronically by an authorized delivery agent selected by the institution for processing orders of electronic transcripts to incomingtranscripts@calhoun.edu, or
  • Hand delivered official copy in an originally sealed envelope.

Faxed and/or emailed copies are considered unofficial and will not satisfy your admissions requirement.
