Transferring Colleges: PCC’s Transfer Student Guide

At Pitt, we make transferring colleges as easy as applying as a first-time student. PCC is one of the best colleges to transfer to because of our step-by-step guide:

  • Path — PCC has many career resources to help you decide on your career path, including assessment tests, especially if you are transferring colleges after one semester.
  • Apply — As a transfer student, you’ll need to complete an online form to verify residency status through the Residency Determination Service (RDS). Please enter your RDS number when you begin your application with the College Foundation of North Carolina.
  • Submit — Request official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities to be sent to: Pitt Community College, Office of the Registrar, P.O. Drawer 7007, Greenville, NC 27835, or email them to transcripts@email.pittcc.edu. If you have additional questions, please call 252-493-7232.
  • Financial Aid — While PCC’s tuition is affordable, there are other expenses such as books for which you may need assistance. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the place to start. Review a tutorial on how to complete your FAFSA. If you have already submitted your FAFSA, be sure you enter PCC’s school code, 004062, to direct the application to us.
  • Placement — If you have transferrable English and/or math credits reflected on your official transcript(s), completing placement tests is not required. Transfer students without these credits who graduated high school over 10 years ago may be asked to complete the RISE Assessment.
  • Connect — A Student Success Advisor will review your course selections and prepare you for New Student Orientation. Meet our advisors and schedule an appointment today.
  • Attend — Even if you are transferring colleges after one semester, the best way to set yourself up for success at PCC is to attend New Student Orientation.
