2. Students under 21 years of age must provide an official high school transcript to demonstrate completion of high school curricular requirements.

Transfer Policies:
Transcripts from colleges and universities accredited by the Higher Learning Commission or other regional associations will be given full value. Students who transfer to CASC with a retention/graduation GPA high enough to meet CASC’s retention standards will be admitted in good standing. Otherwise, students who transfer to CASC with a retention/graduation GPA below CASC’s retention standards will be admitted under Academic Probation or Academic Notice.

2. Any transfer probation student with curricular deficiencies must remove the deficiencies within the first 12 hours of enrollment. A system wide course transfer matrix is maintained online and updated annually by the State Regents for all Oklahoma public colleges and universities.
CASC accepts all courses outlined by the transfer matrix and other courses based on a review of the institution’s regional accreditation, comparable course content, and successful course completion.

Student Students who wish to enroll in courses without intending to pursue a degree may be permitted to enroll in no more than nine credit hours (cumulative) without submitting academic credentials or meeting the academic curricular or performance requirements of the institution of desired entry.
