Transfer Credit Evaluation

Prerequisite Evaluation

Many courses at SFCC have prerequisite requirements that block your ability to register until the prerequisite has been satisfied. If you have taken the prerequisite course at another regionally accredited institution, official transcripts must be sent to SFCC for evaluation. In some cases, assessment testing may not be required if you have prior college-level math and/or English. Transcripts provided to SFCC become a part of your permanent record and cannot be returned or removed.

Students enrolled in professional/technical programs should contact the program faculty academic consultant before requesting an evaluation. Program faculty academic consultant will most often decide the equivalency of professional/technical courses.

Unofficial transcripts, grade reports and online printouts will not be accepted. Your transfer transcripts should be sent from the transfer institution in a sealed envelope and sent directly to SFCC Admissions Office so that they are received 2 to 3 weeks prior to your registration.

Full Evaluation

If you intend to earn a degree at SFCC, you may want to request a full evaluation of your transfer credits. A transfer credit evaluation is intended to assist you and your faculty academic consultant in choosing appropriate courses to complete your degree.

A transfer credit evaluation is not an official degree evaluation. To receive an official degree evaluation, you must submit a graduation/degree application. You are required to file a degree application when half of the credits required for your degree have been completed.

Students enrolled in professional/technical programs should contact the program faculty academic consultant before requesting a full evaluation. Program faculty academic consultant will most often decide the equivalency of professional/technical courses.

Full evaluations will be processed only for students who are currently enrolled and have completed the first two weeks of the quarter. Allow 4 to 6 weeks for full evaluation results.
