Transfer Options

  • Southeast Community College is committed to providing transfer students with information to guide you with your academic planning.  This webpage contains information you need to know to transfer to the four-year college or university of your choice.  The links below will provide you with information for various colleges and universities, as well as health programs.  Be sure to consult with an advisor to discuss how the courses you take at SCC are applicable to the major you plan to pursue at your four-year institution.  It ultimately is your responsibility to check with the four-year school to which you plan to transfer to ensure the classes you take at SCC will apply toward your intended major.

    How transferring credit typically works:

    • Plan ahead!  Apply to your transfer school at least 4 – 6 months before you wish to attend. Some schools have earlier deadlines.
    • The school to which you transfer always has final approval of how they will apply your SCC credits toward their degrees.
    • Many four-year schools have a limit as to how many credits they will accept (if any) with a grade below a C.
    • A minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.0 (‘C’ average) is usually required to transfer.  However, some schools and some majors require a higher GPA.
    • Your GPA at your four-year school is usually based only on the classes you take at that institution.
    • Your grades at SCC will be used to make an admissions decision for the school to which you plan to transfer.  However, your SCC grades are usually not factored into the GPA at your four-year school.
    • Most schools will usually accept a maximum of approximately 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of transfer credit from a community college.  Refer to the semester to quarter conversion chart for more information.
    • Foundational courses (those with course numbers less than 1000) typically do not transfer.
    • You will need to send an official copy of your final SCC transcript to your four-year school.

    Nebraska Transfer Initiative

    The Nebraska Transfer Initiative (Statewide Common Courses Matrix) provides a seamless transition for SCC Academic Transfer graduates. The Initiative is a cooperative effort by Nebraska's public and private higher education institutions to facilitate the transfer of students who have earned an associate of arts degree into baccalaureate-level programs.  The core of this initiative is a common general education cluster of courses, with the remainder of credit hours required for the associate of arts degree selected by the students in consultation with a transfer advisor and the institution to which they are transferring. This initiative provides a smooth transition with a minimum loss of time and credit when it is accepted by the baccalaureate-granting institution in Nebraska. Effectively, through this initiative, associate and baccalaureate-granting institutions are equal partners in providing the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

    Nebraska Community College Statewide Courses

    The six Nebraska Community College Districts are a unique group in that since 1995 they have worked together to establish a common set of courses that all of the colleges offer. Part of those courses were a part of the Nebraska Transfer Initiative, but additional courses in a variety of areas have been added over the years. This website is to provide you with the information about the original and resigned Initiative Document, the courses, the review process, along with information and connections to each of the six community colleges in Nebraska.
