Transient Students

  • Taking classes at SCC while you are enrolled at another college is a smart way to earn credits while saving time and money!

    Before completing an SCC admissions application and paying the application fee, you should:

    • Check with your college's registrar office to ensure the course you want to take at SCC will transfer to your home institution and meets your program's requirements.
    • Ensure that the class is being offered and is available during your desired term. The Summer 2016 course schedule will be available to view on March 7, 2016.  
    • Understand that the $25 application fee is non-refundable.

    Making Summer Plans? 

    SCC offers 9-week and 5-week terms over the summer with online, hybrid and traditional classes. Learn more about SCC's Summer Term.

    What Will Transfer?

    See transfer articulation details and agreements at SC TRAC or , or view a list of colleges in South Carolina with whom SCC has transfer agreements. (NOTE: It is the student's responsibility to confirm whether or not a class will transfer to his or her home institutions prior to enrolling.)
