Credit from other Colleges and Universities
As part of the admissions process, incoming students must provide IRSC with official transcripts. Admissions personnel will review the transcripts and enter eligible coursework into the student record. Students can then view how credit is applied to their degree and work with their advisor to determine if transferred coursework meets equivalency for their selected pathway.
Students enrolled in college coursework prior to graduation from high school may be awarded college credit. For Dual Enrollment credit earned through a college other than IRSC an official college transcript is required for the evaluation of credit.
