WHAT IS A TRANSFER STUDENT?
If you have completed 15 college credits after graduating high school, you will be considered a transfer student at San Diego Christian. SDC understands that transferring from one college to another can be an overwhelming task, so the Admissions team is here to assist you in the process. Contact your SDC Transfer Specialist, John Gonzales at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
WILL MY UNITS TRANSFER?
San Diego Christian is committed to helping you finish your Bachelor’s degree and will help you transfer in as many units as possible from your previous institution(s). In order to speed up the process, your Transfer Specialist will do an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts before you even apply! See below for details.
1. TRANSCRIPT EVALUATION
Admissions will complete an evaluation of your transcripts and inform you of how many completed units will transfer into your program of interest. In order to request this, complete our Transcript Evaluation Form here and email a copy of your college transcripts (official or unofficial) to email@example.com.

3. SAN DIEGO LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGES
Are you transferring from a local San Diego Community College? We have articulation agreements with several local colleges that outline which courses are automatically transferrable into SDC. You can view them here.
4. NON-TRANSFERRABLE UNITS
· Classes in which the student received a grade of C- or below will not 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. However, if a course description does not align with the content taught in a course at San Diego Christian, it may not transfer.
· A maximum of 90 college credits may be transferred into a degree program at SDC.
