Columbia Basin College accepts successfully completed coursework from regionally accredited
institutions via official transcripts. If you've attended another college or university,
we are happy to evaluate your transcripts and transfer in eligible courses.
If you're only planning to attend CBC for one quarter, there's no need to have your
credits transfered. Unofficial transcripts can be used for registration purposes.

basis by a NACES member certified translation agency.
