Any student who has completed coursework at another school is considered a transfer
student. Spokane Falls Community College welcomes transfer students from two- and
four-year institutions of higher education. SFCC conducts two different types of
transfer credit evaluations: you may need one or both. Prerequisite Evaluations
are provided for all official transcripts from regionally accredited institutions
of higher education. Full Evaluations are for enrolled students planning to earn
a degree and must be requested by the student. Your evaluation is specific to your
program of study.
Transfer Credit Evaluation
Many courses at SFCC have prerequisite requirements that block your ability to register
until the prerequisite has been satisfied. If you have taken the prerequisite course
at another regionally accredited institution, official transcripts must be sent
to SFCC for evaluation. In some cases assessment testing may not be required if
you have prior college-level math and/or English. Remember: transcripts provided
to SFCC become a part of your permanent record and cannot be returned or removed.
Remember: if you are enrolled in a professional/technical program, you need to talk
to your advisor before requesting a full evaluation.
Unofficial transcripts, grade reports and online printouts will not be accepted.
Your transfer transcripts should be sent from the transfer institution in a sealed
envelope and sent directly to SFCC Admissions Office so that they are received 2
– 3 weeks prior to your registration.
Transfer Credit: generally awarded for work completed at an institution
of higher education recognized by a regional accrediting association.
Official Transcript: a legal document which contains the signature
of the certifying official (registrar), institutional seal, and date of use. Must
be delivered in its original sealed envelope to:
SFCC Admissions Office
3410 W. Fort George Wright Dr.
Spokane, WA 99224-5288
Prerequisite: a required or necessary course, which must be taken
prior to taking other like courses.
If you intend to earn a degree at SFCC, you may want to request a full evaluation
of your transfer credits. A transfer credit evaluation is intended to assist you
and your advisor in choosing appropriate courses to complete your degree. A transfer
credit evaluation is not an official degree evaluation. To receive an official
degree evaluation, you must submit a graduation/degree application. You are required
to file a degree application when half of the credits required for your degree have
Students enrolled in professional/technical programs should contact the program
advisor before requesting a full evaluation. Program advisors will most often
decide the equivalency of professional/technical courses. Full evaluations will
be processed only for students who are currently enrolled and have completed the
first two weeks of the quarter. Allow 4 – 6 weeks for full evaluation results.
Mathematics Unofficial Transcript Evaluation
Under extenuating circumstances, transcripts can be unofficially evaluated for
purposes of math placement. You will need a course description (from your previous college website)
of the math course you took. You will also need an unofficial copy of your transcript.
This form is only available approximately one week before the beginning of the quarter.
