Transcript Evaluation

The University of Hawai‘I Maui College (UHMC) recognizes courses completed at other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Transcripts are evaluated by the transcript evaluator upon acceptance to a degree program at UHMC and upon receipt of the Transfer Credit Evaluation Request Form (also available at the Admissions and Records Office) and Official Transcripts from previous institutions. Course descriptions, course outlines, and additional information may be necessary and requested of the student to aid further review of the student’s transcripts and for clarification purposes.

All transcript evaluation inquiries should be directed to the Admissions & Records Office (uhmcar@hawaii.edu or (808)984-2267).

5. Transferability and Applicability of Courses

UH Maui College comprehensively evaluates all transfer credits to ensure a student’s smooth transition into the College. All courses previously evaluated by the UH System (UH Hilo, UH Manoa, UH West Oahu and/or all UH System CC campuses) are subject to review and will be transferred over to applicable requirements. Decisions concerning the acceptance of credits by an institution other than the granting institution are made at the sole discretion of the receiving institution. No representation is made concerning the transferability of any credits to any institution. Students considering continuing their education at or transferring to other institutions must not assume that credits earned will be accepted at the receiving institution. Students should meet with their academic advisor to determine the applicability of their transfer courses to their program of study.
