Transfer Information

HFC welcomes transfer students from institutions of higher education and the United States military. Transfer equivalent credit may also be awarded for some AP and CLEP tests.

The College always tries to award direct equivalent credit. For example, course XXX ###: Intro to Data Processing from State College equals CIS 100: Principles of Data Processing at HFC.

When direct equivalences are not available, elective credit is usually awarded.

General Requirements

General requirements to receive transfer credit at HFC are:

  • An "official" transcript mailed directly from your previous college to HFC. Military personnel should forward their DD295, DD214, or DANTES transcripts to HFC.
  • Transfer credit must be from a regionally accredited college or university.
  • The course must be considered college level.
  • Only grades of 2.0 ("C") or higher are transferable.
  • The American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendation will be used for all military training.

After receipt of your official college transcript, The Registrar's Office will evaluate the course work and post credit equivalents as transfer credit on your HFC transcripts. Please note the process could take up to 2 weeks. All transcripts are evaluated in the order they are received.


Before you check out how your classes will transfer into HFC, don't forget these two overriding policies.

  • You may transfer in a maximum of 40 semester credit hours.
  • Students with a bachelor's degree receive a General Education waiver. For example, you will receive credit for:
    • ENG 131 and ENG 132/ENG 135, which meet the Information Literacy and Written Communication outcomes.
    • American Society, Events, Institutions and Cultures outcome.
    • Wellness outcome.
