Transferring into College of the Redwoods from another school in the United States is easy! You may have the following questions about the transfer process to College of the Redwoods. Some questions might be:
Q: How do I transfer my units to College of the Redwoods?
A: To transfer your units to College of the Redwoods, send an official transcript to the Admissions and Records Office.
Q: Will the units all transfer to College of the Redwoods?
A: Once the official transcript is received, an evaluator will determine if the course(s) can be used to meet major and General Education requirements for College of the Redwoods. CR accepts most other regionally accredited U.S. college and university coursework. Check with a counselor to verify or confirm acceptance of your school's coursework. You can also go to www.assist.org to see what UC, CSU or other California Community College courses are accepted as equivalent coursework.
Q: What can I do to help CR determine if my units will transfer?
A: To help CR evaluators determine acceptable transfer units, please keep a copy of your college or university catalog with course descriptions of the courses you completed. You may be asked to provide full course descriptions (syllabus, and/or course outline) for any courses to be considered for credit. The more information you can provide on the course content, the more likely your chances of getting the credit.
Q: Where do I send my transcripts?
A: Send official transcripts to:
College of the Redwoods
7351 Tompkins Hill Road
Eureka, CA 95501-9300
Q: If I have taken English, ESL, or Math classes from another college, will I still need to take CR's assessment tests?
A: If your transcript shows proof of completing U.S. college English, ESL or Math courses, you may not be required to take CR assessment tests. You can bring your transcript to a counselor with course descriptions, and the counselor will be able to place you into the next highest level course at CR. It is sometimes helpful to take the assessment tests, however, since sometimes waiting on transcripts to arrive may hold up your registration, OR if you do well on a placement test, you may be able to be placed into a higher level course.
