USCI Online High School Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer credit allows you to gain credit for previous high school work or work experience. At USCI Online High School it is our goal to get you a High School Diploma as quickly as possible. We accept up to 75% of previous high school work as transfer credit. Each full credit (1.0) is worth $24 (or $12 per 0.5 credit). The maximum financial credit a student will receive is 25% off tuition- up to $432 off your tuition balance. Here are the steps to take to ensure we maximize your transfer credit.

Previous High School Credit

  1. Complete your Transcript Request Form found at the back of the High School Catalog. To make sure you receive applicable transfer credit in a timely manner, please make sure you complete the transcript request form within 2 weeks of enrollment and mail it to the appropriate junior high school/s and/or high school/s. You may have attended 9th grade as part of a junior high school program. In that case, you should include the junior high school as part of the necessary transcripts to request.

  2. Contact the junior high school and/or high school from which you are requesting transcripts to determine if you need to include any fee with the request and to verify their address.

  3. Send the form to the junior high school/s and/or high school/s where you earned credit. Make sure you include any transcript fee necessary to process your request. Do not send this form to U.S. Career Institute.

  4. All transcripts must be official. An official transcript is one that is mailed or transmitted directly to USCI from the junior high school or high school and includes the school’s seal or security mark.

  5. You must submit previous high school transcripts to USCI within 75 days of enrollment.

  6. Within one week of receiving your official transcript/s, USCI will evaluate the transcript/s in a manner that helps you maximize transfer credit and issue you a high school program plan. This plan shows you which courses you will need to successfully complete in order to earn your USCI high school diploma.

Work Experience Credit

USCI recognizes the importance of skills learned in the workplace. Often times these skills complement the USCI career pathway a student has chosen, a different career, or may even be skills that are necessary for success in many different jobs. These learned skills are of value, and in many cases can result in transfer credit into USCI. You can earn up to 1 elective credit for approved work experience. You can find the form to complete for work credit at the back of the USCI High School Catalog.
