Transcripts from all other institutions must be submitted to the Admissions & Records Office before your application can be evaluated. Students intending to earn an associate degree or certificate from Crafton Hills College must submit official transcripts to the Admissions & Records Office from all other regionally accredited institutions attended, regardless of whether or not coursework will be used towards the degree or certificate. Failure to submit all transcripts will result in the denial of your application. To verify if official transcripts are on file, contact the Admissions & Records Office.

If you are currently attending another institution, you must submit an official transcript immediately showing work in progress, followed by another official transcript after the end of the term with final grades posted. Official transcripts showing completion of currently enrolled courses must be received no later than one (1) month after the end of the term for which you are applying to graduate.

NOTE: Students who have attended or are currently attending San Bernardino Valley College must list SBVC on the Graduation Application but are not required to submit transcripts from SBVC to CHC.
