Transferring credits to Miami Dade College allows your previous academic study, examination, or career experience to be evaluated for possible college credit.
Official transcripts from each institution attended are required for all degree-seeking students. Failure to submit all official transcripts may result in loss of eligibility and removal of financial aid awards. Non-degree-seeking students are not required to submit transcripts and are not eligible for federal financial aid. Please be aware that transcripts submitted after your financial aid has been processed could result in loss of eligibility or removal of your awards, including prior year(s) aid.
Credit may be earned for courses taken at regionally accredited colleges and universities in the United States as well as accredited foreign colleges and universities. Courses may be accepted from nationally accredited institutions if they participate in the Florida Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS).
You must request a separate official transcript from each institution you have attended in the past. Hand carried transcripts will not be not accepted. Transcripts should be mailed directly from institution to institution, or sent electronically by a third party provider (contact your previous institution for additional details).

All previous enrollment are considered when calculating academic progress, including periods in which you did not receive federal financial assistance. Transfer credits that are accepted toward your program of study will also be considered in the calculation of your academic progress. Official College Transcripts must be submitted to the college and evaluated before academic progress is calculated. http://www.mdc.edu/financialaid/how-aid-works/sap-policy.aspx.
A transcript is evaluated using the incoming institution’s course descriptions to issue direct equivalencies. Whenever it is not possible to give a direct equivalent to a course offered at Miami Dade College a general elective will be awarded instead. These general electives can be substituted if approved by the academic department.

A course substitution is the process by which a course completed by a student may be used to satisfy program requirements for graduation in lieu of a different course specified in the degree program towards graduation.
Note: Substitutions granted by Miami Dade College may not be transferable to other institutions.
