Transfer Credit Approval

  • Matriculated students who plan to take courses at other institutions must obtain prior approval by filling out a Transfer Credit Approval Form and submitting it to the Registrar's Office with the course descriptions attached, in order to apply this course work toward the degree requirements of the University.
  • All Biology, Business, English, Mathematics, or World Languages & Literatures (formerly known as Foreign Language) courses must first have departmental approval.  The World Languages & Literatures department will not accept the transfer of any online course(s).  After the approval signature is obtained, the form should be brought to the Registrar's Office for the Registrar's approval.

  • Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 before any courses will be transferred in.
  • Once you submit the form it will be either approved or rejected and you will receive a copy of the form in your OWLS e-mail account.
  • If the transfer course is approved, the student should send a copy of their transcript from the other university with the graded course to the Registrar's Office to be added to their SCSU transcript.
  • When waiting for a course to be added to your transcript, please check your unofficial transcript using Banner Self-Service. Once a course is added to your transcript it shows up on the web immediately.
