Transfer Credit Policy

Prospective students who have prior college coursework and wish to transfer those credits will need to provide the college with the following along, with their application:

  • An official transcript from previously attended school(s)

Tribeca Flashpoint College accepts transfer credit at the Registrar’s discretion from eligible and reputable institutions. Final grades from transfer credit are not factored into a student’s CGPA.

Transfer Credit Policy

To receive transfer credit, all Tribeca Flashpoint College students must submit official transcript(s) to the Registrar’s Office from approved post-secondary institutions. A paper transcript is considered “official” only as long as it remains sealed in its original envelope.

The deadline for submission is the end of the add/drop period of the term in which the course is scheduled. Transfer credit cannot be awarded after a class is failed at the institution.

Students must submit an official transcript for evaluation before transfer credit may be awarded.

  1. Transfer credit will be awarded only for those courses which are equivalent, have a minimum grade of “C-” or better, and are applicable towards a degree or certificate program, which excludes pre-college level or remedial level courses.
  2. Transfer credit can only be awarded from coursework taken at the external institution that issued the official transcript.
  3. Tribeca Flashpoint students submitting transcripts from foreign institutions must have an official evaluation from an National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc. (NACES) approved evaluation service on file.
  4. Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations provide students with the opportunity to complete college-level coursework while in high school and to gain valuable skills and study habits for college. If a student achieves a qualifying score of a 3 or higher on the respective AP Examination, transfer credit is awarded according to the American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations for the respective course requirements. Students must submit a copy of an official AP score report to be evaluated for this transfer credit award.
  5. The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program of credit by examination to obtain recognition of college-level achievement. Tribeca Flashpoint awards transfer credit for equivalent coursework based on CLEP examination scores as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for the respective course requirements. Students must submit an official CLEP score report to be evaluated for this transfer credit award.
  6. The College currently does not award credit for life experience.
  7. Tribeca Flashpoint College reserves the right to approve or deny any request for transfer credit. Grades earned on approved credits will not be applied toward the Tribeca Flashpoint College GPA calculation but will be reflected on the student’s official transcript.
