To evaluate credit of students transferring from regionally accredited institutions
All incoming transfer credit is evaluated by the Office of the Registrar based on several criteria:
- Credits earned at other colleges or universities accredited by one of the six regional accrediting associations will be accepted by South Florida State College (SFSC) and placed on the transcript. All course credits are placed on the SFSC transcript including grades of W, F, I, P, S, U and N.
- Students may be required to take a college placement test appropriate to their program of study regardless of the courses they may have taken at the transferring institution.
- Students who have been denied credit may take the course at SFSC or may take either a CLEP examination or a comprehensive department examination for each subject area in which he/she was denied.
- Students may appeal the denial of transfer credits by written request to the dean, student services.
