Transfer students are eligible to apply for all programs; however, they are not guaranteed credit. Credit is usually granted for courses completed with a grade of “C” or better at another institution accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
Transfer credit evaluations are based on previous college work as it relates to the student’s intended field of study. These courses or degrees must be similar in content and duration to those offered in the program for which an applicant has applied.
Transfer candidates must submit official college transcripts from all colleges previously attended prior to enrolling at Mariano Moreno Culinary Institute. Students must also submit final official high school transcripts.
Students seeking to transfer credit are responsible for having official transcripts forwarded to Mariano Moreno Culinary Institute for review. Students must petition for transfer credit with the Registrar within six weeks after starting classes. If official transcripts or other requested materials are not received within that designated time period, tentative transfer credit will be forfeited.
As with prospective freshman, acceptances are made on a rolling basis as an application becomes complete. Mariano Moreno Culinary Institute requires that, at a minimum, a student complete the final 50% of a program through the Institution.
Mariano Moreno Culinary Institute reserves the right to substitute courses at the discretion of the department chairs, directors or deans. It may be necessary for students to forfeit some previously earned credit in the transfer process since college philosophies, objectives and programs may vary and change from year to year. Therefore, MMCI makes no blanket statement or promise of acceptance of credits from any other institution.
