Important Information Regarding Transfer Credit:

  • Only courses completed at regionally accredited colleges or universities with grades of "C-" or better can be transferred for current students.

  • Upon completion, students must submit an official transcript to the Registrar's Office showing proof of completion.  

  • Students will not receive duplicate credit for any course in which they have already earned credit.

  • Transferred credits are not computed into the student’s cumulative GPA at Southern.  

  • Students may search our database of transferable courses for schools within Connecticut.  

Please Note: Students who will not be concurrently registered for any courses at Southern Connecticut State University during the fall or spring semester must also submit a Leave of Absence form to maintain matriculation status while attending another institution.

For the Spring 2020 Semester Only:

In addition, as a result of COVID-19, where credit was earned in a pass-fail or credit-no credit grade option, transfer credit will be awarded for spring 2020 courses depending on the intended major at the time of approval (see exclusions: Courses Not Eligible for Pass-Fail).  Whereas transfer courses normally appear with a grade of T1 (Transfer grade of C or better), T2 (Transfer grade of C-), or T3 (Transfer grade of D+, D, D-), spring 2020 transfer grades for courses taken as pass-fail or credit-no credit will be determined as meeting the minimum grade equivalent of T1, T2, or T3 according to the definitions on the transferring institution’s transcript key.
