A state university has the discretion to determine which courses they will accept for transfer credit.
What classes can I transfer in from another college?
VCC has an arrangement, called an articulation agreement, with Ohio Christian University (OCU) in Circleville, Ohio and Northpoint College up to 60 semester credit hours will transfer from VCC to an OCU bachelor’s degree program (on campus or online). If you are interested in transferring your credits from VCC to any other college or university you will need to personally contact each separately.
Credits taken at an accredited college or university will be considered for transfer if they fit within the student’s specified academic program. A grade of “C” or higher is required and a sufficient amount of credit to fulfill our requirements is needed. Official transcripts must be submitted at the time of application to be reviewed.
