Online Pre-Approval Form: Frequently Asked Questions

My TCR says that my course is approved, but for 0 units. Does this mean my course is not transferable?

No. 0.0 ** is displayed for a pre-approved course because units granted for a course can vary and are dependent upon the transfer institution. You will earn the number of units noted on the transcript of the institution where you take the course (for a quarter school, the units are divided by 1.5). Your TCR may indicate that a petition is required to determine if units will be granted, or that a syllabus is needed to determine if subject credit will be granted (see examples below).
