Students who have completed college coursework with a grade of D or better through a regionally accredited institution may submit a request to have the credit evaluated toward a degree/certificate at Southwestern Illinois College. Some programs and course requisites may require courses to be completed with a grade of C or better. Some career/occupational programs may accept credit from other career/technical institutions.
Transfer credit grades are not included in the cumulative grade point average (GPA).
A New Student Information form must be submitted prior to requesting an evaluation of transfer credit. Students must see an academic advisor to declare their official program/plan.
To ensure an evaluation of credit, a Transfer Credit Evaluation Request form must be completed and submitted to Enrollment Services. An official transcript must be received from each institution where the credit was earned. Hand-carried transcripts will not be accepted.
Once received by SWIC, transcripts will not be released to third parties or returned to students either in original or copy form. Upon receipt of all necessary documentation, credit will be evaluated toward the student's current degree or certificate program and the results will be e-mailed to your SWIC student email address. Please refer to the International Students section for information on the F-1 Student Visa Admissions Requirements.
Students may track their degree progress by selecting the degree progress link under Academic History in their Student Center on eSTORM.
