HCC welcomes applications from transfer students.
For a limited time, HCC is offering a new Take2! program, which allows eligible students, who've earned at least 24 credits at four-year college or university, to complete an HCC associate degree for free. Click on the link to learn more.
To ensure the successful transfer of previous college credits, students seeking a degree at HCC must:
- Apply for admission to HCC
- Submit official transcripts from all colleges attended and any applicable military transcripts to the Records Office.
- Submit a Transfer Evaluation Request Form. A review of the transcripts will not be completed until all documents have been received and the Transfer Evaluation Request Form has been submitted.
Students who have earned college credits outside of the US will require a course-by-course evaluation in English translation via WES. Students who already have an Official evaluation completed through an agency other than WES should contact the Registrar at 240-500-2341 for further questions. Hagerstown Community College may consider other evaluations if approved by NACES.
If the student has taken CLEP, DSST, AP or similar exams, official score reports must be submitted, as well. It is important that students have a completed credit evaluation before scheduling courses at HCC. Credits taken at regionally accredited institutions will be applied the program of study chosen by the student.
HCC adheres to the general education and transfer policies of the Maryland Higher Education Commission. (See the HCC Catalog for the complete policy.). Additional criteria for transferring into health sciences programs exist. Contact the Academic Advising Office for more information.
