ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS
The Registrar’s Office supplies transcripts of academic
records to students who have no outstanding obligations to the
College. Request a transcript using the online link at least 7-10
working days before you need it. Each copy will be $10.00.
Transcripts on file from other institutions were obtained for
Eastern Idaho Technical College’s use and will not be released to
the student or other institutions.
TRANSFER CREDIT
EITC accepts transfer credit but does not compute grades from
other colleges and universities in the EITC institutional GPA.
Transfer credit will not be evaluated until you have applied for
admission and furnished Student Services with official
transcripts. Transfer credit is generally awarded for work
completed at a post-secondary institution recognized as a college
or university by a regional accrediting association. The Registrar
and appropriate faculty will review courses for transfer prior
to enrollment at EITC to determine applicability to program
graduation requirements. Applicants are encouraged to submit
documents well in advance of their anticipated enrollment date
in order to facilitate the review process. Transfer credit will not
be granted for any course in which a student received less than a
“C-”.
The nature of the subject matter covered in technical course
work is such that frequent changes in course competencies occur
in order to keep pace with industry demands. Because of this,
some previously completed courses may not be of value in
meeting current graduation requirements. The relevancy of
previously completed courses will be evaluated on a case-by-
case basis by appropriate faculty.
For placement purposes, prerequisite mathematics courses must
have been taken within the last seven years.
Students transferring from EITC to other post-secondary
institutions must request their official transcript from EITC be
forwarded to the institution of choice. Receiving institutions
have the prerogative to evaluate the applicability of credits
for transfer. Within Idaho, Boise State University, Idaho State
University, and Lewis-Clark State College have Bachelor of
Applied Science and/or Bachelor of Applied Technology
programs that have been designed specifically for technical
college students who have completed the Associate of Applied
Science degree and wish to continue their education. It is
recommended that interested students contact the college or
university that they plan to attend well in advance of
completing the AAS to obtain specific information regarding
transfer of credit and graduation requirements.
