Transfer Credits

Transferring Credits

Will my credits transfer? We know this is a big concern, and we take it as seriously as you do.

For courses in which you've earned a C or better, we'll typically transfer credits as follows:

  • Up to 62 credits from a community college
  • Up to 93 credits from a four-year college or university

To see how many credits we can transfer for you, it's best to schedule an on-campus interview with a FSC transfer advisor. If you bring copies of your official college transcript(s), we can provide an initial review of transfer credit.
