Enrollment Services provides the following services:

  • Admitting students to Renton Technical College
  • Registration Information
  • Assisting students with transferring in credits from other college and universities
  • Producing official transcripts for students
  • Certifying RTC certificates and degrees

Students who have had program-related coursework at other institutions prior to attending Renton Technical College may be awarded transfer credit. The College maintains credit reciprocity agreements with many institutions of higher learning. Students transferring from other institutions must have an official transcript and courses with less than a "C" or 2.0 grades will not be accepted. To have your transcript evaluated, submit your official transcript and a Transfer Credit Evaluation Request Form to the Office of Enrollment Services. Once the paperwork is submitted, determinations are generally made within two weeks.
