External Coursework Evaluation Process

Attention: Protecting the health and safety of our students and employees is our top priority. Effective, Tuesday, March 17 requests for official external evaluations will be taking 6-8 weeks to complete. In the meantime, counselors will be able to provide unofficial evaluations to assist you with course registration for summer and fall.

Ventura College provides students who have completed coursework at outside institutions with an official evaluation of how external coursework applies to your academic goal. To request an evaluation follow these important steps:

  1. Ensure that all of your external transcripts to be evaluated are on file in the Admissions and Records Office.
  2. Meet with a Counselor during drop-in hours to discuss your educational goal and complete a Transcript Evaluation Request.
  3. A Counselor will complete the evaluation and you will be notified via your school email by Counseling when the transcript evaluation is complete—follow up with a Counselor to review how the evaluated courses apply to your education goal(s) at Ventura College.

Any other evaluation not following this process is considered as a preliminary review and is used only for advisement purposes.

If you have additional questions please contact our Counseling office (805) 289-6448.
