Transfer Credit Appeal

Transcripts from other accredited post-secondary institutions and military service will be evaluated. Credits in which passing grades have been earned will be accepted and counted in transfer as they fulfill St. Louis Community College’s program and degree requirements. Transfer credits will be evaluated for degree and prerequisite requirements in the same manner as credits earned at St. Louis Community College. A transfer student may invoke the college’s transfer appeals process to challenge institutional decisions on the acceptance of credit(s) from regionally accredited Missouri public colleges and universities or those that have been advanced to candidacy status by the Higher Learning Commission.

The student must meet with and review the transcript evaluation with the evaluator in order to ensure that any points of concerns have been addressed. A student may appeal alleged unfair treatment in the evaluation of transfer credit by following this appeals procedure:

Step 1

Within 10 working days of an alleged unfair treatment in the evaluation of transfer credit, the student must make a verbal or written request for an individual conference with the campus enrollment services manager to clarify the alleged unfair treatment and request a remedy. Within 10 working days of receipt of the request, the manager must hold a conference with the student.

Step 2

To pursue Step 2 if the matter is not resolved at Step 1, within 10 working days of the receipt of the written response from the campus enrollment services manager, the student must file a written request with the responsible dean (or department chair at Wildwood) to clarify the alleged unfair treatment and request a remedy. Within 10 working days of the receipt of the student’s request, the dean (or department chair at Wildwood) must hold a conference with the student.

Step 3

To pursue Step 3 if the matter is not resolved at Step 2, within 10 working days of the receipt of the written response from the dean (or department chair at Wildwood), the student must file a written request with the campus provost. Within 10 working days of receipt of the student’s request, the provost must hold a conference with the student. The provost will conduct a review and within 5 working days notify the appropriate parties of the decision. The provost’s decision will be final.
