Moraine Valley has been reviewing the transcripts of former students to award any unearned degrees or certificates. We have also identified thousands of students who are within one to four courses of completing a credential. If you have been directed to this webpage, you may be close to or eligible to earn your Moraine Valley degree or certificate. Please review the FAQs below.


How do I find out how close I am to earning my degree?

The best option is to visit the Academic Advising Center in Building S, Room S201, and meet with an Academic Advisor. They will provide a degree audit of your coursework and discuss any missing requirements. For the Degree Completion Project only, advisors will also provide advising via phone. Please note that the Academic Advisor will need to confirm your identity before providing any information about your academic record. Academic Advising can be reached at (708) 974-5721.

I completed the missing courses at another college or university. Can I use these credits?

Most likely. If the courses were taken at an accredited college or university and are equivalent to the Moraine Valley course, the transfer credit is generally accepted. Even if you transferred and finished another degree, it is possible for you to transfer some credits back to Moraine Valley so that your degree or certificate can be awarded. For example, some students did not complete Speech (COM-103) or a college-level Math course before transferring. Most students complete these courses for their Bachelor’s requirements, and could transfer the credit back to Moraine Valley to earn their Associate’s Degree.

If you believe you have completed the missing course requirements at another college or university and would like Moraine Valley staff to review these records, please send an official transcript directly from the other college or university to:

Moraine Valley Community College
Degree Completion Project, S201
9000 West College Parkway
Palos Hills, IL 60465-2478

E-transcripts can be sent directly to

Note: it may take up to 4 weeks to complete a review after an official transcript is received.

How can I re-enroll to finish my degree or certificate?

The Registration staff can also complete your course registration over the phone.
