Academic Transfer of Credits

Transfer of Credits from VDCI

The transferability of clock hour credits earned at VDCI to another college, university or school is determined solely by the receiving institution. Acceptance of the clock hour credits earned while in a VDCI certificate program is also determined solely by the receiving institution to which a student may seek to transfer.

If the clock hour credits that are earned at VDCI are not accepted at the institution to which a student seeks to transfer, they may be required to repeat some or all of their coursework at that institution. Students should discuss how their individual courses will transfer with the registrar's office and the receiving institution before they enroll. For this reason, the student should make certain that their attendance at this institution will meet their educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which they may seek to transfer after attending VDCI to determine if their certificate(s) will transfer.

At VDCI, our courses are typically 10-, 20- and 30-clock hours (contact hours). There are equations which are used to convert the clock hours to credit units. Typically, a 10-clock hour course converts to 0.26 semester credits or 0.4 quarter credits. A 20-clock hour course converts to 0.52 semester credits or 0.80 quarter credits. A 30-clock hour course converts to 0.80 semester credits or 1.2 quarter credits.

VDCI does accept transfer credits from other schools, universities, or other accredited educational institutions.

Veterans applying for entrance to VDCI will have their prior coursework evaluated according to Federal requirements. Veteran transfer of credit policies will adhere to the same parameters detailed in procedures listed below.
