I took a course at another college which should fulfill a major requirement, why isn't it showing on my transcripts? Major requirements that were fulfilled at other institutions will not show on your TMU transcripts. Your major advisor will track your major requirements and exclude any exceptions, including transfer work, from your graduation contract that will confirm your graduation requirements when you are a senior. If there are any questions about the fulfillment of your major requirements, please contact your major advisor. The Registrar's Office does not advise on major requirements.
I took a Gen Ed at another college, why is it not showing on my transcripts?
- Do we have your transcripts from the other institution? If so, do the transcripts show all of your grades? Sometimes, we will be sent transcripts before grades have been posted for a given semester. If there is not grade, you will not receive credit. You can check with the Registrar's Office to see what we have on file for you.
- Is the course approved for transfer? Please review the instructions above to see college-specific lists that show exactly which courses will transfer.
How long does it take for transfer work to show on my transcripts? Once we receive the transcripts, it may take 1-3 business days to appear on your transcripts depending on the work load and time of year. However, as soon as you are awarded credit, your unofficial transcript in Self-Service is updated in real-time. Click on "View & Print My Unofficial Transcript" to check for updates.
- Transfer students who have satisfied ALL of
the requirements for either IGETC (UC or
CSU) or BREADTH prior to enrolling at TMU will be considered to have
their non-Bible GE class requirements complete. No further
non-Bible GE classes will be required at TMU.
- Bible General Education. Transfers with ≥ 24
units will only need to satisfy one Bible course per semester of
enrollment until graduation. The first five, in any
sequence, must be Old Testament Survey I & II, New Testament Survey I
& II, and Essentials of Christian Thought.
students may submit their transcripts to their Admissions Counselor for
academic advising at any time before enrolling for their first
