Transfer Credit for Nonaccredited Institutions

SCF accepts transfer credits from all regionally accredited institutions of higher education. Students who transfer to SCF from institutions that are not members of a regional accrediting agency, and who wish to have credits transferred to their SCF academic record, must provide Educational Records with: an official transcript sent directly from the sending institution, course descriptions, a syllabus and faculty credentials for each course for which they are requesting credit, and any other information the College deems necessary to conduct a proper course evaluation.

If sufficient information is not provided, the College reserves the right to request additional documentation to support the acceptance of the credit. Educational Records will review each course in consultation with the academic departments. The credit hours must be applicable to the degree/certificate the student is seeking at SCF. If the credit is accepted, the courses will be placed on the student's SCF transcript with the letter grades as they appeared on the transcript from the sending institution and calculated in the overall grade point average. Once the evaluation is complete, the student will receive an official copy of all coursework accepted in transfer.
