Apply for Admission
An evaluation of transfer credit will be performed for any student who has previously acquired college level credit and wishes to pursue a degree at Montana Tech. The official evaluation will be provided once all official transcripts have been received, the student’s application for admission is complete, and the student has been admitted.
If all college-level transcripts are on file in the Enrollment Services Office 30 days before the semester begins, an evaluation will be completed and notification will be sent to the student within 10 working days. An official evaluation for transcripts received less than 30 days before the semester begins is not guaranteed before the first day of class. However, every effort will be made to provide an unofficial review allowing new students to enroll.
The Enrollment Services Office, in conjunction with the appropriate academic department, will review all eligible course work for transferability and will determine the applicability of transfer credit to specific degree program requirements. A grade of “C-“ or better is required for acceptance of credit. Note that some courses accepted into Montana Tech may not count towards completion of your selected major.
International students transferring to Montana Tech must submit the following items in order for their course work to be considered:
- Official College Transcripts (in English)
- Web links to the detailed course descriptions for all classes taken (in English)
Students Transferring from Outside the United States and Canada
The college(s) you previously attended must be a legitimate institution of higher education and have a website where we can verify their credentials and their course offerings. If Montana Tech cannot verify this information, we may request that you order a course-by-course transfer evaluation from World Education Services (WES) or Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE).
WES and ECE evaluations can take up to 12 weeks to obtain and there is a cost associated with these services that you will be required to cover. You must request that an official report be sent to both Montana Tech and to yourself, and they must arrive prior to the application deadline. To find out more, go to www.wes.org or www.ece.org.
