Step 2: Transfer Credit to FRCC

Complete the Transfer Credit Evaluation form to help us determine what credits you have and which will transfer. FRCC accepts credits for classes in which you earned a C- or higher. 

Learn about other credits we accept, such as AP and IB.

If you're a guest or visiting student and won't be earning a degree at FRCC (and not transferring in any credit), please see the streamlined admissions process.

FRCC can only accept official transcripts sent directly to the Office of the Registrar (by mail or electronically) from your previous college or university. They can be emailed to or sent to the FRCC campus you want to attend. Transcripts issued to the student, hand-carried, or faxed cannot be accepted. Find campuses.

Step 4: Apply for Financial Aid

There are several options that can help pay for college including:

  • Grants and scholarships (free money that does not have to be repaid)
  • Loans (which you borrow and repay in the future)
  • Work-study (money earned through a job on or off campus)

Filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the first step for applying for financial aid. Learn more about FAFSA and how to apply for financial aid.
