How will my course credits transfer to SPC?
Use the Transfer Evaluation Tool to get an idea of how the credits you earned at another college or university may transfer to SPC. We would be happy to answer specific questions you have about this tool. You may contact us at email@example.com.
Check your transfer credit
All grades for college-level courses (including Fs) will be considered for calculation of grade point average. After your transcript evaluation is complete, please check MySPC to see if your transfer credits have been posted as expected.
- Your official SPC transcript will reflect three items:
- Your SPC grade point average
- Your SPC transfer grade point average
- A combined grade point average
- Upper division course will only be posted to your SPC record if you are pursuing a bachelor’s degree or at the request of your program or advisor.
- Graduate level courses will not be posted to your SPC record.
- If you have repeated a course at another institution, SPC will accept only the most recent attempt for that course.
- All grades for college-level courses (including Fs) will be considered for calculation of grade point average.
- Transfer course for which there is no direct SPC equivalent will be posted as elective credit and designate with a ‘999’ course number. If you believe a course posted as an elective should satisfy a degree requirement, you may submit a request for an Alternate Satisfaction. This request should be completed in consultation with your academic advisor.
- Non-regionally accredited institutions
SPC will transfer only course work that was completed at a regionally-accredited institution. We do not accept credits from non-regionally accredited institutions, except for some Florida schools that participate in the Statewide Common Course Numbering System and are included on an approved list maintained by the Florida Department of Education.
For courses that are initially deemed nontransferable to St. Petersburg College, you have the option of seeking an alternative method for obtaining credit. The following supporting documentation must be submitted by the student for each course requested for reconsideration:
- A copy of each course syllabus must include course title, course length, course description, text used.
- Verification of faculty credentials, to include a copy of the faculty member’s resume.
- The student should submit the petition for credit form and the aforementioned documentation to the Admissions and Records department.
We recommend that you meet with an advisor to determine how to best use your transfer credits to meet your degree objectives. You should also contact the financial aid offices at SPC and the school you currently attend to determine transfer policies.
Students who attended high school or college outside the United States
SPC will require an official evaluation completed by a NACES-affiliated organization.
Request a comprehensive evaluation and have the agency send the results to SPC.
Request a course-by-course evaluation for educational purposes and have the agency send the results to SPC. Note: SPC does not accept evaluations completed for employment or licensure purposes.
