Be certain that you are enrolled in a program which will transfer.
Meet with a counselor to talk about your interests and goals, and learn how SCCC can help you meet them.
Begin identifying colleges that have what you want.
Start exploring the transfer references available to you. You will want to visit college websites, or look at college guides and individual college catalogs available in The Counseling Center.
Initially identify several schools to contact for further information: request a catalog, view book and other materials for transfer students.
Don’t wait for a deadline date to file your applications. Apply in September for the Spring semester. Apply in January for the Fall.
The fastest way to apply is online; visit the admissions area of the college website to see if they have an online application.
READ APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, pay attention to specific instructions for Transfer Students.
Send in the application as well as all required documents.
Visit the colleges you have chosen. If this is not possible, develop a list of admission related questions, and call the Admissions Office. Most colleges will not provide credit evaluations until after you have been admitted.
Apply for graduation in the SCCC Registrar’s Office- deadlines are 12/15 for January, 3/1 for May and 7/1 for August.
If you have not done so, submit your applications and request that transcripts be sent.
Wait to hear from the colleges, and respond to your acceptances by the stated deadlines. The earlier you reply, the sooner you can register for your classes, and the better your chances of getting housing.
If you did not previously make plans to transfer, and now decide you would like to continue your education, please contact the Transfer Counselor. Call 973-300-2207 for an appointment.
