Transferring Credit to SCC

  • Students can demonstrate college readiness through prior successful post-secondary course experiences.

    Official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions must be sent directly from the institution to the College Admissions Office at the appropriate campus. Transcripts will be evaluated to determine if the student meets college entrance requirements through evidence of three (3) or more hours of transfer credit from an accredited postsecondary institution with a grade of “C” or better in each of the areas of English, math and a course which indicates reading ability, e.g., social studies, speech, psychology. If the demonstrated coursework does not meet the minimum program requirement or is 5 years or older, testing is required.

    Transfer credit from other accredited postsecondary institutions may be awarded for advanced standing. Transfer credit may or may not apply to SCC programs. Determination will be made by the division dean regarding graduation or satisfaction of program requirements with transfer credit.

    SCC recognizes course work completed at military schools, through active duty, National Guard or Reserves. Credits may be applied to military courses with the approval of the appropriate campus division. The Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services, published by the American Council for Education, is used as a guideline.

    Courses for which credit is granted by transfer will be recorded with a “TR” grade and will not be included in calculating a student’s grade-point average.
