• Students Transferring to MHCC


  • MHCC accepts credits from many regionally-accredited institutions. It can take up to 6 weeks to complete the transfer process, so please plan ahead! Make sure you’ve applied for admissions to get an MHCC student ID number.

    Note for transfer students who plan to use financial aid: Sometimes special paperwork is required in order to receive financial aid after transferring to or from another college. Be sure to check your financial aid progress on MyMHCC and complete all steps well before the term begins.

    1. If you want to get an idea of how some of your courses from regionally accredited institutions may transfer to MHCC use our Transfer Tool (please note this guide will only list courses which have previously been evaluated by MHCC and does not replace an official evaluation as outlined below)
    2. Order your OFFICIAL transcripts from your other college(s). You can have them sent electronically or by mail to: MHCC Admissions Office, 26000 SE Stark St., Gresham, OR 97030
    3. Complete the Transfer Evaluation Request form . When your transcripts have been evaluated, you should receive a confirmation email from MHCC’s Admissions Office.
    4. Meet with an adviser in the Academic Advising & Transfer Center to see how your credits transferred and if you’ll need to take any portions of the College Placement Test. You may be referred to a program adviser if you have declared a specific major or a career counselor if you are undecided or undeclared.
    5. Register for classes. To learn how to use the online registration system, please visit the Orientation Center, or check out our online demos.
