Prerequisites and Evaluations
Students needing to clear prerequisites for specific courses but, do not need the credits for the prerequisite to be applied to their College of the Redwoods transcript, may fill out a Request to Clear Prerequisite Form. Unofficial as well as Official transcripts are accepted to verify courses when clearing prerequisites. Requests to Clear Prerequisite forms take approximately 1 week to process.
Students seeking a Degree or Certificate from College of the Redwoods that want credits earned at another institution applied towards their CR Degree must fill out and submit a Transcript Evaluation Request. Only Official Transcripts will be used for evaluations. Students requesting Transcript Evaluations must have completed 12 units with College of the Redwoods prior to submitting the request. Please allow up to 4 weeks to process evaluations. Students will be notified via their student email account when an evaluation has been completed.
An evaluation of your educational transcripts from other institutions will include:
- General Education
- Major Courses
- Elective Credit
All coursework for evaluations must be completed at a regionally accredited institution.
In order for your transcripts to be evaluated:
- You must be a current CR student and have an active student ID number, student email address and valid Program of Study.
- You must have a copy of your official transcripts on file in the Admission’s Office. The Official Transcript can accompany your Evaluation Request Form.
- All foreign transcripts must go through a transcription service before CR will evaluate them for credit. For more information about this, please check the International Students information page.
- Students must have completed a minimum of 12 units with CR prior to submission of Evaluation Request Form. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor/advisor prior to turning in the Transcript Evaluation Request to Admissions & Records.
*Please note while major courses from another institution may be considered for transfer, they will be applied to the general education requirements and not your major courses at CR. Contact the area Dean for further clarification.
Please allow two to four weeks for the evaluation to be completed. You can review results of your transcript evaluation by logging on to your WebAdvisor account. Click on “Program Evaluation” under the Academic Profile section.
