Catalog 2024 - 2025

Evaluation of Post Secondary Transfer Credits

Once all transcripts have arrived, a formal evaluation of transfer credit will take place as follows:

  • All credits awarded from regionally accredited schools will be evaluated for transfer.
  • Credits from non-regionally accredited institutions may be evaluated provided the institution participates in Florida's Statewide Course Numbering System and/or the student submits documentation of instructor credentials and a syllabus for each course.
  • All military training, experience, or coursework that appears in the Florida Department of Education Credit or Clock hour for Military Equivalency list will be evaluated upon the IRSC’s receipt of the student’s transcript of the training or coursework. (6A-10.024).
  • All evaluated courses will be added to the student's IRSC academic record.
  • Courses in which the student made an insufficient grade to earn transfer credit will be calculated in the cumulative grade point average.
  • Transfer courses that are not equivalent to IRSC courses will also be calculated in the cumulative grade point average though the courses do not count toward a degree or certificate.
  • Courses from any Health Science program will not automatically transfer even if a comparable course exists, however these will be calculated in the cumulative grade point average.
  • All credits attempted at IRSC, along with transfer credits from all other institutions attended, will be used to compute the student's cumulative grade point average.
  • All evaluated may courses count toward a student's attempted hours for financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
  • Transfer Students with a last term below a 2.0 GPA will be admitted on an academic warning status. Students in this category should refer to the Academic Warning/Probation/Suspension  section of this catalog.

IRSC accepts eligible credits of a grade of D or higher in all undergraduate courses. However, a grade of C is required for certain General Education and upper level courses, and as a prerequisite for other courses. Please consult an IRSC Advisor for further clarification.
