Transfer Students

More than 40% of Southeast Tech's students transfer in credits to begin their degree. Southeast Tech will accept credits from any post-secondary institution accredited by one of the major regional accrediting associations, e.g., Higher Learning Commission. Acceptance of transfer credits is contingent upon the student having completed the course or courses with a grade of “C” or better, and that in the judgment of the Registrar, the course credit and content is similar to that contained in the Southeast Tech course. Transferred credits are not used in determining grade point average.

Official transfer credit evaluation is made by the Registrar’s Office. However, to get a preliminary estimate of the previous credits you have earned which will transfer to Southeast Tech, we offer this online transfer credit equivalency calculator.
