Ready to make your future happen? We are, too, which is why SCE is so transfer-friendly! Consider this: If you've earned college credits from another accredited college or university — no matter how long ago — you can apply up to 75 credits toward a bachelor's degree; 36 credits toward an associate's degree; and 3 credits toward a certificate.
Whatever your background, there’s a place for you at PC SCE.
Our policies regarding the transfer of credits are simple and straightforward.
Requesting transfer credit is easy, too
SCE has transfer agreements with several community colleges. These agreements ease the way for students who have earned an associate's degree to transfer to SCE and complete their bachelor’s degree. In fact, students who meet the requirements are
guaranteed admission into SCE.

Get credit for what you know
We recognize that students gain substantial knowledge in a variety of ways -- through work, volunteering, military service, job training, reading and travel.
SCE allows you to earn credit for documented "prior learning" that has taken place outside of the classroom. A maximum of 30 credits of prior learning credit may be applied as elective credit in a bachelor’s degree program. These credits count toward your overall allowance of 75 transfer credits.
Here’s how it works — choose the program that best fits your situation
