Transcripts & Transfer of Credits

When you submit your application, you will also need to submit all official high school and college transcripts to Pace University. If you are transferring credits from other institutions, you must submit an official catalog or syllabus from each post-secondary school attended, in English, containing course descriptions and degree requirements in order to have transfer credits evaluated.

Transcripts


Before you are officially enrolled in any of the Pace University/NACTEL programs: we must receive all high school and college transcripts and diplomas as well as any leaving examination scores from secondary and post-secondary institutions. You can use our Transcript Request form to provide former schools with direction on how to prepare and where to send transcripts. Find the Transcript Request form on the 'Forms' page of the Student Information Center.

Transcripts are considered official only if they are sent directly to Pace University from the educational institution of origin, or are certified as true copies by the student's Ministry of Education, or a U.S. consular officer. Photocopies and facsimiles are not accepted. Have transcripts sent to:

Pace University
NACTEL Program
ATT: Lisa Slingerland
100 Summit Lake Road
Valhalla, NY 10595

Or have your transcripts electronically sent to:
Paceonlineadm@pace.edu

If you have questions, you can call us at 914-923-2830.
When transcripts are issued in a language other than English, they must be accompanied by an English translation attested to by the institution of origin, the student's Ministry of Education or a U.S. consular officer.

If your prior institution sends out electronic transcripts, please contact us with the name of the Transcript service and the date it was sent. This will enable us to locate your transcript quickly.

Please note, the New York Education Department requires high school transcripts regardless of whether or not you attended college. In addition, the Federal Government now requires proof of high school completion for Federal Student Loans.

Transfer of Credits

If you are transferring credits from other institutions, you must submit an official catalog or syllabus from each post-secondary school attended, in English, containing course descriptions and degree requirements in order to have transfer credits evaluated.

Please be aware that this process can take anywhere from several weeks to several months, depending on how responsive the other institutions are.

Grade Requirement
Transfer credit may be received only for courses taken at other institutions in which a grade of C or better was earned (C- grades are not transferable).

Major Program
A maximum of 16 transfer and prior learning credits can be applied to your major program concentration within the Associates degree.

Degree Program
A maximum of 32 transfer and prior learning credits can be applied to the Associates degree in general, and 4 transfer or prior learning credits to either of the certificates.

Verbal and Quantitative Skills
Transfer students are required to complete the Verbal and Quantitative Skills component of the Foundation (General Education) requirement (english amd math).

Writing Requirements
The Pace University/NACTEL program has a 6 credit requirement in writing. Those students who transfer to the University with fewer than 6 credits in writing must take a placement examination and may be referred to additional writing courses.

Sources of Transfer Credits
  • Institutions accredited by a regional affiliate of Commission of Higher Education;
  • Institutions that have entered into transfer credit articulation agreements with Pace University;
  • Other institutions with the approval of the appropriate chairperson and dean;
  • Results of acceptable performance on standardized proficiency examinations.
Where a standardized proficiency examination is not available, a Pace departmental Competency Assessment may be administered. The cost of each examination is one credit of tuition for each course challenged. Additional fees may apply.
