College Transcripts

If interested in transferable credit, you may send in all college transcripts recieved since last attending Southern Crescent. To request your college transcripts:

  • Please contact your other college for instructions.
  • Many colleges use online transcript services. Check with your college to find out.

NOTE: If the transcript is in a language other than English, provide official English translations of all secondary and post-secondary records and evaluations of those records by an approved independent evaluation service. Applicants must pay the costs of having their records translated and/or evaluated. At a minimum, applicants must have the equivalent of a high school diploma for most programs. If an applicant has an associate degree or a baccalaureate degree, a high school transcript is not required. After applicants submit this documentation, the Student Affairs Office will evaluate their application material.

Testing requirement will depend upon previous test scores and/or classes taken.
