Transfer Degrees

A Transfer Degree is a great option for any student who wants to pursue a Bachelors degree. A transfer degree allows you to complete general education courses, start on requirements for your chosen major and be ready to transfer to a four year college or a university with junior standing. You save money, time, and get a great education.

All our faculty have Masters or PhD degrees in their discipline and they also have training and experience in teaching in ways that both challenge and support students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to be successful before and after transfer. Students from SVC have successfully transferred to all Washington state public and private colleges as well as many out of state colleges including top rated schools such as Stanford, MIT, UC Davis, etc …
