Transfer- in Student Information
New transfer-in students are NOT required to meet with a counselor prior to registration. To have your California Community College transcripts evaluated by the Transcript Evaluation Office please click here. If you need to clear prerequisites from courses taken at other schools click here.
The Academic Counseling Center is offering advanced remote (Google Chat/Zoom) appointments for Summer/Fall planning to incoming transfer students who have attended other colleges/universities and who have already applied to SBCC. You must have applied to SBCC for Summer or Fall 2023, have your student ID number, be able to login to your Pipeline email, and have copies of transcript(s) from all schools attended in order to request an appointment. Summer registration for new transfer students begins April 19, and the 10-week summer session begins June 5, 2023. Fall registration for new transfer students begins June 13, and the semester begins August 28, 2023.
At this appointment we will assist you in creating an educational plan, and help you start the transcript evaluation process. Comprehensive evaluations of transcripts may take 1-2 weeks for some classes, and 3 months for others, based on where the courses were taken and which department needs to evaluate them: an academic department faculty at SBCC, Transcript Evaluation Office (TEO), or Articulation Office.
To request an optional appointment with an academic counselor, you can fill out the Transfer Student Appointment Request Form here.
For coursework completed outside of the California Community College system having a course syllabus (course outline/program of study) can often speed up the evaluation process.
