A Transfer Student is a high school graduate or person who has received a General Education Diploma, who has coursework (a transcript) from an accredited educational institution other than their current school.
Whether you are thinking about transferring to Mid-Plains Community College from another accredited institution or transferring your Mid-Plains Community College credits to another accredited institution, MPCC will make the process smooth and simple.
Choose which transfer option you are interested in exploring.
Transfer of Credit
Courses from accredited institutions in which grades of “A”, “B”, or “C” (or their equivalent) have been earned will be considered for transfer credit to Mid-Plains Community College. College courses in which grades of “D” or “F” (or their equivalent) have been earned will not be considered for transfer credit. Additional information about MPCC transfer credit may be found within the “Admissions and Registration” section of this catalog. Note: Grades and courses taken at other institutions will not replace grades in equivalent courses taken at MPCC.
Preparing for Transfer
It is important for students to know whether the courses they are registering for meet the degree requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer. Transfer planning starts with initial registration at MPCC and continues until the student's graduation. Professional advisors and faculty advisors assist students in planning the appropriate classes for registration.
TRANSFER REMINDERS: Many colleges will accept only classes with a grade of “C” or better. Most colleges will not transfer in more than 66 credits from a 2-year college. Courses with a prefix of less than 1000 are considered to be developmental and do not transfer.
Transfer Credit Evaluation
Students who have attended college elsewhere should have their official transcripts forwarded to Registration and Records at 1205 E. Third St., McCook, NE 69001, before starting school to have previous coursework evaluated.
Notification of Student Rights (Student Data)
Registration and Records, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, will only release non-directory student record information after receiving written permission from the student. However, certain officials or agencies have legal authorization to inspect records. Student record “directory information” may be provided in response to an inquiry without permission from the student. At MPCC, directory information includes name, address, telephone number, dates of attendance, student classification, field of study, and full- or part-time status. To prevent the release of directory information or for questions, contact Registration and Records through one of the options listed above. See the Student Right to Know page for additional details and information.
