Students Transferring into COD

If you are transferring to COD from another college, you may need to meet with a counselor to verify prerequisites. Please submit Matriculation Exemption Request online ​to possibly waive orientation. This is required even if you have submitted official transcripts to Admissions & Records.

Transcripts/documents must include y​our name, the college’s name and must be legible. Counselors will automatically clear English and math courses that are equivalent to COD’s English and math courses. If you need specific prerequisite courses waived (other than basic math and English), please come in to the Counseling Office.
