Third-Year Option at Chatfield
To assist students who have earned an Associate’s degree transition into a Bachelor’s degree program, Chatfield offers a unique third-year option. This opportunity allows students to complete junior-level courses at Chatfield before transferring.
Students must meet with the transfer institution to develop a written and signed academic plan outlining the courses they will complete at Chatfield toward their Bachelor’s degree requirements.
Transfer Credit to Chatfield from another institution
Students wishing to transfer credit earned at another regionally accredited academic institution must submit an official transcript to the Registrar’s Office for evaluation. The student must have earned a grade C or higher for a class to be considered for transfer credit. The Registrar’s Office will evaluate each transcript and award credit for equivalent Chatfield courses on a case-by-case basis. Grades earned for transfer credit will be printed on a student’s Chatfield transcript, but will not be calculated into the student’s cumulative GPA. In order to receive a Chatfield College of Associate of Arts degree, student must complete the last 17 credit hours at Chatfield. (Chatfield Student Handbook, page 37)
Students wishing to cross-register for courses at any of the colleges in the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of College and Universities (GCCCU) may register with the Registrar using cross-registration forms. Individual conferences with counselors from these colleges are recommended if the students plan to pursue four-year degrees there.
