AACRAO's Transfer Credit Practices (TCP) Online
      NATURE AND PURPOSE       INSTITUTIONS LISTED
               
     
  Welcome to the online version of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers' (AACRAO) Transfer Credit Practices of Designated Educational Institutions (TCP) publication. TCP was published through 1977 under its former title, Report of Credit Given by Educational Institutions. This site reports the transfer acceptance practices of reporting institutions regarding credit awarded by other colleges and universities. The acceptance practices of the reporting institutions may differ from those of other institutions. Each institution applies its own credit evaluation policies in determining acceptability and applicability of courses.

The TCP Online publication is not meant to be the sole mechanism by which institutions determine the acceptance of transfer credit. TCP is published to facilitate student mobility among institutions, and to reduce the problems encountered by students who attend more than one institution in the pursuit of an associate, baccalaureate, or higher degree.

 
     
     
  TCP includes all institutions listed in the current Higher Education Directory, a publication of the Higher Education Publishers, Inc. Some institutions not listed in the above mentioned directory also may be included. Institutions may elect not to be included in the reporting system and Institutions which request exclusion from Transfer Credit Practices are not listed in this publication. The non-appearance of any institution from a state's listing should not be considered a judgment of its quality nor imply unacceptability of its credit.

As a convenience to its users, TCP reports on the accreditation status of the institutions. However, TCP is NOT a directory of all accredited institutions and AACRAO is not an accrediting agency. If a given institution does not appear in the TCP, it does not mean that it is not accredited. The TCP is not, nor is it intended to be, a comprehensive listing of accredited schools.
