Transfer Credit Evaluation

Lower division credit is accepted for transfer from colleges accredited by recognized regional accrediting associations, but not if it duplicates credit for courses taken at Santa Rosa Junior College.

Official transcripts of all previous schooling should be sent directly to the Admissions and Records Office for evaluation. In-person submittals of official transcripts will only be accepted if delivered in a sealed envelope from the issuing institution.  Transcripts will be evaluated after the student submits the Transfer Credit Evaluation Form available online at: All transcripts become part of each student’s permanent SRJC record and will not be released to other institutions or third parties.


Santa Rosa Junior College awards credit for College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Advanced Placement (AP) Exams with scores of 3, 4, or 5. Students must have official AP score reports sent by the College Board to the SRJC Office of Admissions, Records, and Enrollment Development for evaluation.

To view the AP Credit Legislative Policy (AB 1985) and the SRJC AP Exam Credit  chart listing SRJC course comparability and detailing how AP Exams meet General Education requirements, visit the SRJC Web site at  -- click on “AP Exam Scores Worksheet”. Please note that a few departments require a score of 4 or 5 to fulfill specific course requirements or place conditions on the award of credit. GE credit, however, follows policy set forth by AB 1985, requiring only a minimum score of 3 for appropriate GE Areas. 

See the section on Assessment in this catalog for information on exemption from placement activities in math, chemistry, or English with AP scores of 3 or higher.

Please consult an SRJC Counselor about AP credit earned prior to 2011-12 or to discuss how AP credit fits into your educational plan. This is especially important for those intending to transfer to a four-year college or university, since each campus determines how AP Exams will apply toward credit in a major.


Four units of credit are granted for honorable completion of basic training of United States military training as evidenced by a copy of the separation paper (DD214) on file in the Admissions and Records Office.

Additional credit for military courses may be granted upon evaluation of course content and as recommended in the American Council on Education Guide. Evidence of completion must be submitted to the Admissions and Records Office.


Credit for International Baccalaureate (IB) is granted for a limited number (some) Higher Level IB exams. No credit is granted for the subsidiary level exams. An official IB transcript must be submitted for credit review.


Credit may be awarded for foreign coursework after evaluation by a credentialed evaluation agency and review by the A&R office. A list of agencies recognized by SRJC may be obtained from A&R or the counselor.

Any credit granted by SRJC is subject to  re-evaluation by any other college.
