If you are planning to transfer to a four-year or an advanced technical program (approximately 40 % of SCCC students transfer), then you should start planning immediately. The following are recommendations for students who will be transferring:
Find out about the school of your choice; what are the admission requirements, scholarship requirements, deadlines? Inquire about specific programs of study and transferability of SCCC courses. You may check transferability of classes to other institutions by clicking here.
Discuss your plans with your advisor. Meet with a representative from your prospective college. Visit the campus. Call ahead for an appointment so that you can get a guided tour. Have a list of questions ready. Ask about financial assistance and apply. Find about housing and make application. Official transcripts from SCCC will need to be sent.
The college or university that you transfer to will determine the acceptance of SCCC credits; this determination varies by college, major and degree. While a college may accept courses from SCCC, the courses may not count as meeting the requirements for a specific degree. Any recommendations from SCCC advisors about transfer requirements at other colleges should not be the only source of advisement. Ultimately, the college receiving the courses will determine transfer credit. It is always the student's final responsibility on course selection.
