  • To receive a degree, diploma or certificate, transfer students must complete at least 25 percent of their program semester hours at SCC. The remaining 75 percent may be any combination of transfer credit, American Council on Education (ACE) College Credit, Advanced Placement (AP), articulation from secondary and vocational/technical schools, CLEP, credit by examination, or experiential learning. Refer to the current SCC catalog for procedures and requirements for credit from any of these sources.
  • The registrar evaluates credits from other institutions. The registrar may seek input from thed dean or department head to determine the applicability of specific courses. The vice president for academic affairs has final approval on transfer credits to a specific program of study. In general, transfer credit is awarded when a course is:
    • from a post-secondary institution accredited by a regional accreditation association, such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
    • similar in content to the catalog synopsis of the corresponding course at Spartanburg Community College
    • required, or permitted as an elective, in the program
    • graded at a letter grade of "C" or better, or a numerical grade of 2.0 or better (on a 4-point scale)
    • Not a duplication of credits already earned.
  • SCC reserves the right to determine whether a particular course meets the requirements and standards for college transfer. Although a course may be transferable, it may not necessarily apply to a particular major (degree, diploma, or certificate). Program displays in the Spartanburg Community College catalog include the general education, major, and elective requirements for each program of study at the college.
  • Spartanburg Community College does not use transfer credits in grade point average (GPA) calculations.
