MARCH Track 2 Transcript Evaluation

Transcript evaluations will be completed after a student has officially accepted our offer of admission and paid their deposit. The results of the transfer evaluations and a two year study plan will be sent during the Orientation email series. After receiving this plan you may schedule an appointment with an advisor to review the course content together and discuss the exact courses that you should take.

Track 2 applicants who are offered admission to the Portland campus will have a transcript review completed by the end of August. Portland Campus students will be notified directly if the Eugene campus is a more appropriate campus location to start their program.

After your initial transcript evaluation, you may appeal for additional course waivers for required courses based on previous  academic coursework. Waivers will be considered based on academic work only – professional or personal experience will not qualify for course waivers. Academic work must be equivalent (or greater) in credit hours to the course being waived and the student must have a B- or better in the course.  Any course waivers toward degree requirements are provisionally granted and are open to review for the first year and will not become a permanent part of your record until the following summer. Course waivers do not reduce the number of credits required for your degree (87 credits for MArch Track 2).

To petition for additional course waivers please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor..
