HS and College Transcripts

If you are pursuing a degree, official transcripts are required. Transcripts must be sent directly from the originating institution to KCC.

High school transcripts

Complete the transcript request form for the high school you last attended.

If you earned a General Educational Development (GED) certificate, you may submit it in place of your high school transcript. You can request a certificate from the appropriate regional office of education.

Were you home schooled? KCC accepts the equivalent of a high school diploma in a home school setting with proper documentation.

College transcripts

If you are pursuing a degree or would like to receive credit for college courses completed elsewhere, KCC must have on file official transcripts from colleges you've previously attended. Use the transcript request form for each college you have attended.

Courses you took at another college or university that pertain to your program of study may count toward your degree. To determine if these courses are eligible, submit a transcript evaluation request to the Admissions and Registration Office.

 

International transcripts​

Foreign College Courses: If you are pursuing a degree or would like to receive college credit for college courses completed in in a foreign country, please see the chart below. Courses you took at another college or university that pertain to your program of study may count toward your degree. To determine if these courses are eligible, submit a transcript evaluation request to KCC’s  Admissions and Registration Office in addition to a course-by-course evaluation conducted by the private evaluation agency. It is recommended that you request an evaluation of your transcripts by an evaluation agency prior to registering for courses at KCC. Registering prior to the completion of the official evaluation may have financial aid and course implications.

Please note: Completing an evaluation does not guarantee transfer of college credit to Kankakee Community College.​

Foreign High School Courses: KCC will need an evaluation of your high school academic records/transcripts if you are a prospective international student (abroad or currently in F-1 status) or a permanent resident planning on utilizing Financial Aid. Equivalency to a US high school education must be noted on the evaluation. GPA is not required. It is recommended that you request an evaluation of your academic records/transcripts by an evaluation agency prior to registering for courses at KCC. Registering prior to the completion of the official evaluation may have financial aid and course implications. Agencies that KCC evaluators are familiar with are listed in the box below.

If you are a prospective international student (abroad or currently in F-1 status), please visit: KCC’s Steps to Enroll and contact Laura Gardner, KCC’s designated school official, at lgardner@kcc.edu or 815-802-8513 if you have questions/concerns.

All transcripts from outside of the United States must be evaluated by a private evaluation agency at the student’s expense. (If the transcript is in a language other than English, it must also be translated.) KCC will only accept evaluations from agencies affiliated with the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) for out-of-country institutions. Request that an original evaluation document be sent to KCC directly from the evaluation agency. A list of member agencies can be found at www.naces.org./members.htm.
