Transfer Student Checklist

Students transferring from other colleges or universities are eligible for admission to SCC with advance standing. Courses in which 'F' grades have been earned will not be granted transfer credit.

This list was developed to help you through the enrollment process. If you follow all of the suggestions outlined, you should have a smooth start at SCC!

  1. Complete an Application for Admission. A+ Scholarship students, please read this Critical Information.

  2. Have official transcripts from EACH institution that you attended sent to the Admissions Office.

    • Credits for courses with passing grades may be accepted at the registrar's discretion.

  3. Submit a Request for Transfer Evaluation Form to the Admissions Office and declare a degree.

    • Accepted transfer credits will be included in the cumulative hours of credit, but will not be calculated in the grade point average.

    • You will receive a transfer evaluation report indicating how the courses were accepted. For an evaluation, allow two weeks from the time the transcripts are received.

    • Transcripts sent to SCC will not be automatically reviewed unless the student has requested in writing that a review be made.

  4. Apply for Financial Assistance and Scholarships.

    If receiving the A+ Scholarship, contact the Financial Assistance Office and inform your academic counselor. A+ Scholarship students MUST SEE an Academic Counselor each time you add or drop courses.

  5. Take the Academic Skills Assessment. If you have not completed college-level math or English or plan to take courses that require English or math as a prerequisite, you must take the assessment.

    If you have completed English and/or math at another college, the full assessment may not be needed; however, proof of prerequisite (report card or transcript) will be required.


    If you achieved at least the minimum score on the ACT sub-tests listed below, you are NOT required to take the Academic Skills Assessment.

    • E-ACT 18 = ENG-101
    • E-ACT 27 = ENG-101
    • R-ACT 18 = Reading Not Required
    • M-ACT 23 = College Algebra

    ACT Scores are valid for two years.

    If you placed high enough in one subject area to waive the assessment test but not in another subject area, you will need to take the assessment test for 'that' particular subject area.

    Please bring a copy of your ACT scores in case the college does not have your scores loaded in our system.

  6. Complete the Course Registration Form and bring to the Registration Office.

    • Check the college catalog to ensure the required prerequisites or corequisites for the course have been met. All course prerequisites must be met prior to registration.
    • If you had prerequisite courses at a college other than SCC, you will need to have the transcript or grade card in your admissions file or with you when you register to show proof that you have met that prerequisite (proof of prerequisite).
    • Check the credit course schedule for course availability.
    • Meeting with an advisor is NOT required since you've had previous college credit. However, if you would like help with selecting courses, understanding your assessment scores and with the registration process, visit the Academic Counseling website for hours and contact information. Keep in mind that walk-in advising is now available and wait times vary depending on the time of the year.
    • If you are an A+ scholarship student, you must see an advisor to register.
  7. Pay Tuition and Fees in Full.
    You will be dropped from all of your courses if you fail to pay your tuition in full by the due date. Tuition/Fee information. In-district and Out-of-District Information.

    Save time – pay online via SCC Connection.

  8. Obtain your Picture ID and Parking Tag.

  9. Buy your Textbooks.

  10. Sign up for SCC Connection.

    Access your final grades, personal SCC records and register for upcoming semesters. You must complete one full semester before you can register online.
