Many students receive transfer credits from their previous institutions which are located overseas. In some cases, students have received between 50-60 transfer credits. Students who are interested in applying for transfer credits should request a transcript evaluation form as soon as possible. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks for an evaluation to be completed. Also note that there is a fee for this service.
As an international student you may choose one of several options for completing your education at Skagit Valley College. SVC offers a general studies degree (AA) and three distinct transfer degree options: general transfer degree (AA-DTA), science degree, and music degree. SVC also offers ATA degrees in 26 professional/technical programs.
Many SVC students who complete a transfer degree (AA-DTA) continue their studies at Western Washington University, University of Washington, Eastern Washington University or Washington State University. SVC has transfer credit agreements with most 4-year institutions in Washington State. In most cases, SVC graduates have little problem with transferring SVC earned credit to other 4-year colleges and universities across the U.S. If you are considering a transfer from SVC to a 4-year college or university outside of Washington State, it is recommended that you consult the Admissions Office at the institution you are considering, in order to verify credit transfer ability.
Typically, SVC students who transfer to a 4-year college or university do as well or better than students who began their studies at the same 4-year college or university.
