Transcript Evaluation/Review

If you have previously taken college course work, you may be able to use it at Skagit Valley College. Previous math and English classes may establish course placement, and other classes may count toward a degree or certificate at SVC.

Placement for math and/or English

If you have previously completed math or English at a college or university, you must bring a copy of your college/university transcript(s) to Cardinal Take-Off New Student Group Advising. This will allow an adviser to assist you with class placement. Note that the transcript(s) you bring can be unofficial for placement purposes.

You may also want to transfer these credits you have already earned to Skagit Valley College to count toward a degree or certificate at SVC. Please continue reading below for details about that process. 

Should I get my transcripts evaluated?

Yes, if you:

  1. Plan to earn a degree or certificate at SVC.
  2. Want to use previous course credit to fulfill pre-requisite requirements.

If classes elsewhere apply to a pre-requisite for an SVC class, you may use an unofficial copy of your transcript to get permission to override prerequisites, though you will want to follow up with a transcript evaluation.

How do I get my transcript(s) evaluated?

  • Order official transcripts from all other colleges you have attended 
  • SVC recommends you order an unofficial transcript for yourself at the same time. You can use the unofficial copy for advising
  • Submit a Transcript Evaluation Request

How long does it take?

Please allow 12 weeks from the receipt of all materials for the completed evaluation.

Can I get a copy of my other college transcript(s) from SVC?

Transcripts, once received, become the property of the college and will not be released to students or others.
