Looking to transfer to CCBC? Smart move!

Each year thousands of students begin their college journey at another institution and transfer to continue their education at CCBC.

Here’s Why: Plus, if you have credits to transfer, we’ll do everything we can to make them count toward your CCBC degree or certificate. We know you worked hard to earn them!

How to transfer to CCBC

Step 1 - Apply

Complete an application for admission.

Be sure to also complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at fafsa.gov
(CCBC school code: 002063).

Step 2 - Submit your transcript

As soon as possible, you’ll need to request an official transcript from the high school and college(s) you have attended or are currently attending.

Ways to get your transcript submitted to CCBC:

Electronically
We prefer to use the Parchment secure electronic transcript delivery service. Eligible institutions»

Mail
Attn: Transcript Evaluation
CCBC – Registrar's Office
7201 Rossville Boulevard
Baltimore, Md 21237

In-person
Drop off to any Enrollment Services Center (CCBC Catonsville, CCBC Dundalk, CCBC Essex or CCBC Owings Mills Center) during normal business hours.

CCBC will evaluate which credits can be transferred and how they meet the requirements for your degree or certificate. Transcripts are reviewed on a first-in basis and are evaluated within two to three weeks of receipt.

We recommend making submissions before the following due dates to allow adequate time to complete the evaluation:
  • by May 15 for Summer classes
  • by August 15 for Fall classes
  • by December 15 for Winter and Spring classes
Once we are finished evaluating your transcript, you will receive an email with the results.

What is an official transcript?

There are two forms of official transcripts: original, sealed envelope and electronic.

  • A transcript is considered official when it is received in an original, sealed envelope from the issuing institution. Any transcript submitted that has been removed from the official, sealed envelope is considered unofficial.

  • Electronic transcripts are only considered official when sent directly from the institution. Emailed transcripts from students are considered unofficial.

Transfer credits are not awarded for unofficial transcripts. Official transcripts submitted become the property of CCBC.
CCBC will not reissue the transcript to another institution or return it to the student. Transcripts must be received within one year of the issue date.

Step 3 - Connect with an advisor

An academic advisor can work with you to determine how your transfer credits will apply to your major at CCBC.

They can also assist with:
  • Helping you build your schedule.
  • Registering for classes.
  • Navigating financial aid.
  • Research scholarship opportunities.
  • Establishing if you’ll need to complete any placement testing.
  • Working through academic challenges.
  • And much more!
