Come to JCC as a transfer student
Jamestown Community College welcomes you to transfer to JCC and join our student body. We will accept up to 30 credit hours earned at another college toward an associate’s degree at JCC.
How to transfer your credits to JCC
- Request official transcripts from the college you previously attended
- Have them sent directly to our Admissions office. Transfer credit is reviewed and determined by the Registrar’s office.
- We accept up to 30 hours of transfer credit toward an associate’s degree.
- You must complete a minimum of 30 hours of credit at JCC to be eligible for an associate’s degree from JCC.
- Transfer credit is awarded from colleges and universities recognized by an appropriate accrediting agency, such as the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
- We will not accept credit from courses with a grade of C-minus and below.
- JCC will consider an application for admission from students previously dismissed from a college for disciplinary reasons, but the college reserves the right to admit or deny any application. After applying, you must submit a detailed summary of the violations, a personal statement, and a letter of recommendation; additional information may be required. The application deadline is 35 days prior to the start of the semester.
You may appeal the results of a transfer evaluation by contacting the Registrar’s office in writing to explain the issue under appeal and request a meeting to discuss it. The registrar may request that you provide additional information (such as a course syllabus). At the meeting, the registrar, or other evaluator, will discuss with you the criteria used to evaluate the credits brought to JCC.
If the appeal is not resolved in your meeting with the registrar, you may request that the appeal be forwarded to the academic department that oversees the course(s) under review. A program coordinator or dean will review the decision and all available information and render a decision to uphold the appeal or not. The coordinator or dean may request that you provide additional information for consideration.
If the appeal is not resolved with the decision of the coordinator or dean, you may request that the appeal be forwarded to the vice president of academic affairs, who will review the appeal and supporting information and render a decision to uphold the appeal or not. The vice president may request that you provide additional information for consideration. The vice president’s decision is final for students transferring credits to JCC from non-SUNY institutions.
If you are transferring credits to JCC from a SUNY institution and do not agree with the vice president of academic affairs’ decision, you may take your appeal to the SUNY system provost by submitting a student transfer appeal form. It is your responsibility to initiate each step of the appeal process and to provide any additional information requested pertaining to the course(s) in question.
