To receive a degree, diploma or certificate at SCC, transfer students must complete at least 25 percent of their program semester hours through instruction offered by 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 awarding of credit from any of these sources.
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.
