Planning to Transfer Somewhere After SCC?

2+2. Two years at SCC, two years at a four-year college or university. That's smart. No, it's brilliant – considering the tuition and fees you'd pay to a college or university for all four years.

You can be confident your SCC credits will be accepted at hundreds of four-year institutions.

And you may just have a jump on other students when you get there – students who spend their first two years at SCC are often better prepared for their junior year than non-transfer students.

Here's what you need to know to apply:

  1. You can apply any time during the year.
  2. First, you'll need to complete an Application for Admission. (A+ Scholarship student? Make sure you read this.)
  3. Apply for financial aid and scholarships. If you're receiving the A+ Scholarship, get in touch with the Financial Aid Office and let your academic counselor know. And as an A+ Scholarship student, you must seean academic counselor each time you add or drop a course.
  4. Take the Academic Skills Assessment.

    If you took the ACT within the past two years ...

    ACT PLACEMENT SCORE INFORMATION: If you received at least the minimum score on the ACT sub-tests listed below, yay you – you are NOT required to take the Academic Skills Assessment!
    • E-ACT 21 = ENG 101 – English Composition I
    • E-ACT 27 = ENG 102 – English Composition II
    • R-ACT 18 = Reading Not Required
    • M-ACT 23 = College Algebra (with a score of 23 or greater, you may take the math assessment to place into a higher level math class)

    A couple of things you need to know:
    • If you placed high enough in one subject to waive the assessment test, but not in another, you'll need to take the assessment test for that particular subject area.
    • Wires sometimes get crossed, so please bring a copy of your ACT scores, just in case they haven't been loaded into our system yet.
  5. Schedule an appointment to meet with an academic counselor and register for classes. Together you'll review your test results and the counselor will help you select courses.

    Before you meet with a counselor, you'll need to complete an online "What's Next?" pre-advising registration preparation session. Just click here to get started.
  6. Sign up for College 101 (COL 101) – Yeah, it's a thing. If you're a first-time freshman taking 9 or more credit hours in fall or spring, or 5 or more credit hours in the summer term, you're required to take "College Success Seminar" (COL 101).

    Students who withdraw from COL 101 will have a "hold" put on their registration for the following semester. For all the details, go to Academic Counseling.
  7. Pay tuition and fees in full. You'll be dropped from all of your courses if you fail to pay your tuition in full by the due date, so read this closely:
  8. Get your picture ID and parking tag.
  9. Buy your textbooks.
  10. Login to mySCC portal. This is where you'll access student tools like Canvas, CougarMail, Tech Help Desk and SCC Connection (grades, GPA, register for classes, etc.). You can also find campus announcements, news and events in the portal.

Planning to Transfer to SCC From Another Institution?

If you're looking to transfer to SCC from another college or university, welcome. Most course credits you've earned will transfer to SCC. We've put together a list to make the transfer process as smooth as possible for you.

  1. First, you'll need to complete an Application for Admission. (A+ Scholarship student? Make sure you read this.)
  2. Next, arrange to have your official transcripts from EACH institution you've attended sent to the Enrollment Services Department.

    (Credits for courses with passing grades will be accepted at the registrar's discretion.)
  3. Submit a Request for Transfer Evaluation Form to the Enrollment Services Department and declare a degree. This is important – transcripts sent to SCC without this form won't be automatically evaluated!
    1. Your accepted transfer credits will be included in the cumulative hours of credit, but won't be calculated in your GPA.
    2. About two weeks after we receive your transcripts, you'll get a transfer evaluation report showing which courses were accepted.
  4. Apply for financial aid and scholarships. If you're receiving the A+ Scholarship, get in touch with the Financial Aid Office and let your academic counselor know.

    As an A+ Scholarship student, you must see an academic counselor each time you add or drop a course.
  5. Take the Academic Skills Assessment. If you haven't completed college-level math or English, or plan to take a course that requires English or math as a pre-requisite, you'll have to take the full assessment.

    If you've completed English or math at another college, you may not have to take the full assessment, but we'll need to see a "proof of prerequisite." (That's a fancy way of saying grades or transcript.)

    If you took the ACT within the past two years ...
  6. ACT PLACEMENT SCORE INFORMATION: If you received at least the minimum score on the ACT sub-tests listed below, yay you – you are NOT required to take the Academic Skills Assessment!
    • E-ACT 21 = ENG 101 – English Composition I
    • E-ACT 27 = ENG 102 – English Composition II
    • R-ACT 18 = Reading Not Required
    • M-ACT 23 = College Algebra (with a score of 23 or greater, you may take the math assessment to place into a higher level math class)

    • Wires sometimes get crossed, so please bring a copy of your ACT scores, just in case they haven't been loaded into our system yet.
  7. You're almost done – next, complete the Course Registration Form and take it to the Enrollment Services Department.
    • Check the college catalog to make sure you have the required prerequisites or corequisites for the course – all prerequisites must be met prior to registration.
    • If you took prerequisite courses at another college, please be sure you have the transcript or grade report in your admissions file or with you when you register.
    • Check the credit course schedule for course eligibility.
    • Since you've got previous college credit, we don't need you to meet with an academic advisor. But feel free to if you need help selecting courses, understanding your assessment scores, or have questions about the registration process.
    • And, if you're an A+ Scholarship student, you'll have to see an advisor to register.
    • Visit the Academic Counseling section for hours and contact information. Keep in mind walk-in advising is available Mondays and Tuesdays and wait times vary depending on the time of year.
  8. Pay tuition and fees in full. You'll be dropped from all of your courses if you fail to pay your tuition in full by the due date, so read this closely:
  9. Get your picture ID and parking tag.

  11. Login to mySCC portal. This is where you'll access student tools like Canvas, CougarMail, Tech Help Desk and SCC Connection (grades, GPA, register for classes, etc.). You can also find campus announcements, news and events in the portal.
