WHAT IS A TRANSFER STUDENT?

Students who have completed college courses after graduating high school are considered to be a transfer student.  At SDC, we understand that transferring from one college to another can sometimes be a difficult task, so the admissions team would love to assist you in the process!  

STEPS TO APPPLY
Once we have received all the documents below, we will review your application and notify you of an acceptance decision within two weeks.
 
1. APPLICATION WITH ESSAYS
Complete your application to SDC for free here!
 
2. COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS
Transcripts from every college attended must be submitted to the office of admissions.  Minimum GPA acceptance requirement of 2.5 for transfer students with over 15 college credits completed.
 
3. HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS
All transfer students are required to submit transcripts from the high school which they attended.  If a student has completed less than 15 college credits, then their high school GPA will be considered when their application is reviewed for acceptance.  A mnimum 2.75 high school GPA is required for students with less than 15 college credits.
 
4. SPIRITUAL LIFE RECOMMENDATION
A recommendation from someone who is in church leadership, and is non-related, must be completed for the applicant.  You can find an onlilne and printable version of the recommendation here.  An academic recommendation may be required if the student's grades are below acceptance requirements.

4. NON-TRANSFERRABLE UNITS
  • Grades of C- or below are not accepted to transfer.
  • If a course description does not align with the content taught in a course at San Diego Christian, it may not be accepted to transfer.  Courses completed at another college for which a corresponding course does not exist at SDC, in some cases, may be transferred in as a general elective.
  • A maximum of 90 college credits may be transferred into a degree program at SDC.
