Credit Transfer From Another School

Transcripts of work completed at other accredited colleges may be submitted to the Director of Education or Chief Academic Officer at your campus. Transcripts should be submitted before or during the first term of a student's program. Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated to determine if the course work is similar in nature, content and level to that required in our program. 

If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for courses completed at other accredited colleges provided that the grades received for the courses were "C" or better. 

Because our program is specifically tailored to career preparation, course credits from other post-secondary schools may not be transferable. Note that some courses in our program include the demonstration of required competencies to meet CVTEA accreditation requirements. Transfer credit is typically not awarded for these courses. Specific questions about transfer credit should be addressed to the Chief Academic Officer/Director of Education at your campus.  

Credit is not granted for advanced placement or experential learning except for military training that has been evaluated and recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). Vet Tech Institute may award credit based on these recommendations when the credit is for courses similar in nature, content, and level to that required by Vet Tech Institute. Students seeking credit for military training should provide a transcript from the American Council on Education for evaluation. Credit will be treated as transfer credit and will count toward graduation.  

**Chicago campus only: Students who participated in the Advanced Placement program in their high schools may be granted credit provided they had scores of 3, 4, or 5 on the Advanced Placement tests. 

Vet Tech Institute at Fox College is a receiving institution within the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree and satisfactorily completed the Transferable General Education Core Curriculum at any participating college or university in Illinois will be granted credit towards fulfilling Fox College’s general education requirements.** 




Credit Transfer To Another School 

The acceptance of credit is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits. Because our program is designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for our courses are not transferable to other institutions. We cannot represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit.  

A student who is interested in attempting to transfer credits to another institution should contact the Chief Academic Officer/Director of Education. We will supply the necessary documentation that may aid the student in receiving credits for the completed course work provided that the student does not owe the school money, is not delinquent or in default on a student loan, or does not owe a refund on any federal or state student financial aid program.
