In some cases where courses content is divided differently at another institution, SCC may require that two courses be taken in order to transfer credits for one course at SCC.
The number of earned credits for a particular course at the transferring institution must be equivalent or greater than the number of credits being sought for the equivalent course at SCC. Greater credit will not be awarded for courses from the transferring institution with more credits than the equivalent SCC course. For example, if the transferring institution has an Anatomy and Physiology course that is 5 credits, it will only transfer for 4 credits at SCC.
For courses taken at institutions not using the semester-hour system, credits will be converted to semester hours. Quarter-hour credits are converted using the standard "1 quarter hour times .67" to determine semester-hour equivalency. All other systems are considered on an individual basis.
Certain specialty courses will not transfer, including, but not limited to, the following SCC course codes: EME, FNA (except FNA 101 and FNA 102), HLH, NET, NUR, and SGT.
A syllabus or portfolio may be required for certain courses, as determined by the SCC Registrar's Office. It is the student's responsibility to provide any additional information or documentation, if requested. Requests for syllabi or other documentation does not guarantee acceptance upon review.
