CTC reserves the right to limit the number of transcripts issued at any one time. A complimentary transcript is provided upon graduation from CTC.
You may be denied your transcript if you have an outstanding obligation to Central Texas College. The obligation may be due to a library fine, parking ticket, returned check, nonrepayment of financial aid, failure to comply with admissions requirements, or any other indebtedness to CTC.
Central Texas College provides an extensive testing program, which supports traditional classroom instruction and distance learning courses.

Official documentation (transcripts, DD214, etc.) is required.
Proctored Testing for Distant Learners

Institutional Challenge Examinations
Students may request permission to take challenge examinations for certain courses. An application for challenging a course must be submitted with the nonrefundable fee through the Campus office serving the student’s location to the CTC Testing Office in Killeen, Texas.

Students are eligible to take a challenge exam upon successful completion of six semester hours with a "C" or higher with CTC. To obtain credit, the student must pass the examination with a minimum grade of "B." Retesting is not permitted, and the fee is forfeited. Credit awarded for successful completion of the challenge exam cannot be used to satisfy CTC residency requirements.

In keeping with this policy, Central Texas College has established the Individualized Career Evaluation Process (ICEP).
