Transferring Credit to SCC

  • Southeast Community College (SCC) will accept credit hours for courses taken at accredited institutions approved by the U.S. Department of Education in which grades of “A”, “B” or “C” (or their equivalent) have been earned. Students must be degree seeking with SCC in order to have the transcripts reviewed for transfer credit.

    It is the student’s responsibility to provide SCC with official transcripts from the institutions they have attended for the review of transfer credit. The transfer evaluation is based on the program the student has been accepted into for the upcoming term. If a student changes to another program, the student needs to contact the Registration office to have the credits re-evaluated. Grades and courses taken at other institutions will not replace grades in equivalent courses taken at SCC. Credits earned and accepted from a transfer institution are not used in the computation of a student’s grade point average at SCC.

    SCC will accept up to two-thirds of the program credits as transfer credits. Registration reviews transcripts for students that apply to the Health programs once the student has applied and official transcripts have been received regardless of the student’s application status. All other programs are reviewed once the student has been accepted to a program at Southeast Community College. Certain Health Programs have a time limit on some courses being transferred in. These are listed on the individual program page of the catalog.

    Students may need to provide additional documentation to SCC for courses to be evaluated. This may include the course syllabus, course description, or additional details.

    Courses that don’t meet our criteria may be transferred in as an elective based on a review by the program director or department chair. Examples include courses short on credit hours, short on content, or not an exact match to an existing course with SCC.

    Once the evaluation has been completed, students will be mailed a copy of the transfer evaluation report. Questions on how the transferred courses fits the student’s program of study should be directed to the student’s advisor.
