Hibbing Community College offers knowledgeable transfer staff and support for you to transfer in and transfer out of Hibbing Community College. Please contact the transfer specialist in the Student Services area.
The receiving college or university decides what credits transfer and if credits meet degree requirements. The accreditation of both your sending and your receiving institution can affect the transfer of credits you earn. College level credits and courses completed at other colleges, universities or institutions are evaluated for transfer to Hibbing Community College based on official transcripts received from institutions you previously attended.
Not every course that transfers will help a student graduate. One question transfer students should consider is, Will my credits fulfill requirements for my chosen degree or program of study? If students change career goals or program of study, they may not be able to complete all degree requirements within the usual number of graduation credits. Please refer to Hibbing's Transfer of Credit Policies for further information about how courses transfer to Hibbing Community College.
