Transfer Students

Informal evaluations of transfer credits may be requested. Such evaluations are subject to change upon completion of a formal transfer credit evaluation when all official transcripts are received. Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College reserves the right to evaluate all transfer credits in relation to its programs. Students should have transcripts sent as soon as they enroll at SCTC because formal transfer credit evaluations will not take place until official transcripts are received.

Transfer Credits/Courses
Courses completed at regionally accredited institutions are accepted for Associate Degrees. Transfer credit is only given for courses that are equivalent to SCTC courses listed in the catalog in force when the credits are evaluated. Courses are evaluated in terms of content, number of credits, and length of term or semester. A student may request review by the curriculum committee if credit is denied. It is the student’s responsibility to provide all documentation requested by the committee and the committee’s decision is final. The following restrictions apply:

  • transfer credits must have a minimum grade of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale,
  • a maximum of 39 semester hours of academic credit is accepted from accredited institutions toward an Associate Degree,
  • students must earn thirty (30) credits at Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College,
  • students completing an additional SCTC degree must earn an additional twenty-one (21) credits at SCTC after graduation.
