Transfer Guides

Transferring to a different college and university to continue your education can be intimidating. SCC Enrollment Specialists can make it easier.

Articulation Agreements and Transfer Guides

Southeastern Community College collaborates with four-year institutions in regard to transfer credits. Many articulation agreements have been developed with these colleges and universities so students can have a smooth transition and maximize their transfer of credits. Colleges review and change their requirements, so check with your SCC Enrollment Specialist for up-to-date information.

If you plan to transfer to Iowa State University, University of Iowa, or University of Northern Iowa, be sure to also check out for some helpful information about how your SCC credits will transfer.

Below you'll find links or transfer guides for a few of the schools that SCC works with the most. Any outgoing links are provided as a courtesy by SCC and are maintained by the respective colleges. If the listed link doesn't work, visit the college's website for more information. If you don't see your college listed here, visit with your Enrollment Specialist for details.
