Students requesting to transfer credit(s) must submit all required documentation no less than one week prior to the start of their program of study.

Under no circumstances does Concorde Career College grant academic credit for life experience.
This section does not apply to students withdrawn from the same Concorde campus regardless of withdrawal date.
Students who receive transfer credit will have the program tuition charge prorated based upon the remaining number of credits the student must earn in order to graduate. The Business Office will make the appropriate tuition adjustment.
Concorde does not make any representation or guarantee that coursework completed at another institution will transfer to Concorde.
