Transferring Credits to RRCC

If you are pursuing a degree or certificate and wish previous college credits to be considered for transfer, submit official transcript(s) to Student Records no later than the semester preceding graduation.

Official transcripts may be mailed directly from your previous college(s), emailed from your college or they may be hand carried in a sealed envelope. If you open the envelope it will be considered unofficial.

Note: Consult the “Credit for Prior Learning Handbook” for information on alternate forms of learning  that might be eligible as college credit.

Official Transcripts can be mailed to:
Student Records, Box 8
Red Rocks Community College
13300 W 6th Ave
Lakewood CO 80228-1255
student.records@rrcc.edu
 
There is A LOT to know about this process. Please see the information below to get an idea of what to expect. For full details on our evaluation policy and what RRCC can and cannot accept, please see our Transfer Credit Policy information sheet.

Our process for evaluating transcripts

  1. Transcripts for first time students to RRCC will have their transcript evaluated after the census date of their first semester.
  2. Credits will be transferred based on the Degree/Certificate you are pursuing.

    If you change your degree program, be sure to let us know.  We will then conduct another evaluation. Note: We cannot remove credits that have already been posted. We will only bring in credits that are applicable to the degree/certificate  program you are pursuing.
     
  3. Once the transfer evaluation is complete, you can review the results by accessing your unofficial transcript online.

Prerequisites process

There are a few ways to fulfill pre-requisite requirements at RRCC. 

You may begin with an unofficial transcript to be used to override a pre-requisite which would allow you to register for classes.

We will then need an official transcript. If you do not send an official transcript a registration and transcript hold will be placed on your student account.

Official transcripts may be mailed directly from your previous college(s), emailed from your college or they may be hand carried in a sealed envelope. If you open the envelope it will be considered unofficial.

Your UNOFFICIAL transcript should be:
