Transferring to SVC

Students who have taken courses at another institution prior to admission to SVC will have courses evaluated for transfer during the Admission process. Students enrolled at SVC are strongly advised to have prior approval prior to taking courses at another institution. Without prior approval completed courses taken at other institutions may not be eligible for transfer. Forms to request evaluation of transfer credits may be obtained from the Registrar’s Office. Courses that have not been pre-approved but meet the criteria for transfer will be posted to the SVC student transcript as general transfer credit. Courses taken at another institution may be used to satisfy degree requirements, but do not impact the student’s SVC grade-point average.

  • To be eligible for transfer evaluation, courses must first meet one of the following requirements:
  • Courses taken must be from a regionally accredited college or university in the USA.
  • Courses taken outside the USA must first be evaluated by World Education Services.
  • Courses taken from a USA military school must be evaluated by the American Council on Education.

Courses meeting one of the above criteria will then be evaluated based on the degree requirements (including common core courses) and policies for the declared major. Only common core courses will be evaluated for students with a declared “Exploratory” major. Courses with a grade of C or higher will be evaluated for transfer unless specific programs have higher requirements as outlined in the SVC Catalog. Courses eligible for continued evaluation will be evaluated by the Division Chair responsible for the respective academic discipline.
