Transfer Students

Admissions Information for Transfer Students

Students transferring from another regionally accredited college may receive credit for courses completed with a grade of “C” or better if the course is applicable to the student’s program at Midstate. Midstate College accepts transfer students who meet admissions requirements and who present an official transcript from the collegiate institution last attended. Admissions representatives will send for official transcripts during the enrollment process. Transfer of credit is based upon the student’s official transcript.

One-third of all credit hours for any degree or diploma must be completed at Midstate. In addition, the student must take the final term at Midstate to qualify for a Midstate degree or diploma. All transfer credit must be applied prior to the last term.

Students enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program must complete a total of 60 quarter hours, with 32 quarter hours in upper-division major coursework at Midstate College. Midstate College does not accept more than 92 quarter hours at the 100-200 course level. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Director of Student Success or be a component of a formalized articulation agreement.

The College may require proficiency testing to determine the level of the student’s competency in certain courses, and also reserves the right to refuse transfer credits. If Midstate College placement test scores reflect the need for developmental English or math and the student has successfully completed a higher level transfer English or math class at another college or institution, a proficiency exam will be administered at no cost to the student to assist in determining skill levels. The Director of Student Success will review the test results and any other pertinent information that may be available to determine appropriate class placement.

Midstate College is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). The General Education Core Curriculum (GECC) became effective for entering students as of the summer of 1998. This agreement benefits the students who transfer credit in from other institutions and all transcripts marked with the IAI GECC seal will be accepted as equivalent to the GECC here at Midstate; therefore, students will not be required to retake such courses.
