High School Transcripts

Eligibility

You are eligible to use your high school transcript for course placement if you meet the following criteria:

  • Have at least 2 full years of completed courses on your transcript
  • Are either a current high school student or have graduated from high school within the past 2 years
  • Your transcripts meet the following specifications required for English and/or math placement below.

You can email unofficial copies of your high school transcript to [email protected] for review. Please ensure your full name and GPA is clearly stated on your documents. 

English Placement Using Your High School Transcript

  • For English placement, we accept High School transcripts from across the United States. International transcripts are not eligible for English placement determination.

  • GPA is based on a 4.0 scale. If you high school uses a different GPA scale, we will complete a calculation to find the equivalency.

  • If you want to place higher than transcript placement allows, review other placement options including taking the Accuplacer Assessment, as SVC will honor the higher placement.

You will place into the following courses based on your cumulative high school GPA:

  • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 – 4.0: English &101
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.25 – 2.99: English 99

Math Placement Using Your High School Transcript

  • For Math placement, we accept high school transcripts from across Washington State. Out of state and international transcripts are not eligible for Math placement determinations.  
  • There is no averaging of grades. A student with an A and C in each semester of a year-long course would not be eligible for placement in a course that requires “at least B (each semester).” A student with an A and a B in each semester of a year-long course would look at “at least B (each semester)” placement. 
  • If you want to place higher than transcript placement allows, review other placement options including taking the Accuplacer Assessment, as SVC will honor the higher placement.
  • Once you begin your SVC math course, please see your math instructor as soon as possible within the first few days if you feel you were not placed correctly.
