Course Equivalency Search
This list is used to conduct a search if you want to know which courses MCC has accepted as transfer courses from other schools. Select a school from the drop-down list below, then click search.
The information on the course equivalency search is provided as a general guide of how classes from another institution may transfer to Metropolitan Community College. This information may change and is updated as coursework is continually evaluated. The date in the description field indicates when the entry was added.
If you are planning on attending MCC and would like to transfer courses, please have the institution you are attending or have attended mail an official transcript to the following office:
Metropolitan Community College
Po Box 3777
Omaha NE 68103
Students may also hand deliver an official transcript from an institution to the Records Office on the Fort Omaha Campus. The transcript must be in a sealed envelope from that institution
and stating that it is official.
If students are having their official transcript emailed to MCC through an electronic transcript provider (Parchment,
Scrip-Safe, National Student Clearinghouse, etc), then it must be emailed to email@example.com.
Emailed or faxed transcripts will be considered unofficial and will only be used for advisement purposes.
If you have not
notified MCC of former last names and are sending in an official transcript from another institution that has your previous last name on it, rather than the one on record at MCC, the transcript may not be identified as being yours. For example, your name was Emily Smith when you attended another institution and you are now Emily Johnson at MCC. Please contact
or firstname.lastname@example.org, to update your record so that your transcript may be evaluated in a timely manner.
Transcripts will be reviewed once students have met with an advisor and declared a major. For advisement questions, please call 402-457-2400 to speak with a call center advisor or to schedule an appointment with an advisor. Click on Student Services for campus/center information.
Transcripts are typically evaluated on a course by course basis, so we are unable to evaluate requests via email or over the phone. Courses not offered by MCC will not be transferred in; nor will courses that are less in credit/quarter hours than the courses offered here. Click here for the quarter to semester hours conversion chart.
Once a transcript has been received with the student being identified with a declared program of study, it takes about 5-6 weeks for the initial evaluation to be completed. There are several factors which could lengthen the processing time, including retrieval of course descriptions or additional information needed, sending coursework to Academic Deans for input, and
during peak Records Office periods, i.e., end of a term, graduation.
The following parameters are used to evaluate transcripts.
- Institution must be regionally accredited by one of the following agencies:
- The Higher Learning Commission (HLC)
- Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)
- New England Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (NEASC-CIHE)
- Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)
- Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS)
- Western Association of Schools and Colleges Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (WASC-ACCJC)
- Western Association of Schools and Colleges Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities (WASC-ACSCU)
- Course content must be similar to MCC’s
- Grade of C or better must have been received
- Credit hours must be equal
- Courses are evaluated based on the program of study and general education requirements
*Note: Due to content being regularly updated for the following courses, non-MCC courses will only be accepted if they have been taken within a specific time frame:
INFO 1001 - course needs to have been taken 5 years from the current catalog year.
Once a transcript has been evaluated, a postcard will be sent to students informing them of the results. Students may also log onto their My Services account to view this information (under Academic Profile, Unofficial Transcripts).
If a student changes his/her academic program of study, a re-evaluation may be requested. To request a re-evaluation, the re-evaluation form must be completed.
International Transcript Evaluation
For students who wish to have an international transcript reviewed by MCC for possible credit transfer, they must first have it evaluated by a credential evaluation consultant. College degrees obtained outside the U.S. are only accepted when interpreted by transcript service members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Click here to access a list of consultants. A student is encouraged to contact any or all of the consultants for cost and information. If a student chooses to have a transcript evaluated by one of the listed consultants, it is strongly encouraged to have a course by course review, list the course credit hours for each course, and list letter grades (A-F) earned and have the evaluators provide course descriptions. Once a credential evaluation consultant has reviewed your transcript, please have them send an official evaluation to:
Metropolitan Community College
PO Box 3777
Omaha, NE 68103-3777
International transcripts that have been evaluated by a Credential Evaluation Consultant will be reviewed using MCC's transcript evaluation guidelines/policies.
International High School diplomas/transcripts may also be reviewed by some of the suggested consultants. Please contact them directly for detailed information.
