Financing Your Education
College Credit for Library Work Experience
Are you a current or recent library employee? Would you like to receive college credit for your library work experience? Students
in the degree program at SFCC can submit documentation to the Library and Information Services program administrator to determine
how much library work experience can be substituted for coursework. This may reduce time spent in class and reduce your total
tuition costs as well! Students must be enrolled in the Library and Information Services program at SFCC. All requests must be
approved by the program administrator and the SFCC registrar.
