A transfer certificate(TC) is a certificate provided to a student at his/her request provided by their
previous School/ College or institution/university when the student wants to leave that school/ College or institution/university and continue the education in the other college or institution.
The transfer certificate will have all your personal details of the student mentioned in it as per the record like:
1. Name of student
2. Date of birth: (dd/mm/yy)
3. Place of birth
5. Last Year / Grade attended
6. Date of leaving: (dd/mm/yy)
7. Passed and promoted to
8. Currently in Year / Grade (if transferring midway through the academic year)
9. Curriculum followed
10. All his/her dues are clear and is not a defaulter, etc.
Before a child can be accepted by any school, a transfer certificate(TC) is required to be provided i.e original Transfer Certificate must be submitted to the administration department at the time of enrolment where they are seeking admission. Without this, admission may not be given or canceled. If you have any problem, you can talk to the administration and they can give you an extension of time but without a TC, the admission of the child cannot be guaranteed.
In normal cases, every School/ College or institution/university has their set format which they follow and everything is just to copy and paste so an error is not possible. In case such an error happens, you can take the xerox copy and ask the School/ College or institution/university to reissue you a fresh copy. If your new School/ College or institution/university has overlooked the details and accepted your TC, it nor a case to worry about as your Leaving Certificate(LC) or Birth certificate will have your date of birth(DOB) that will help them to get the information.
