Degree-seeking students must submit official transcripts of high school and all post-secondary institutions attended. Students will not be allowed to register beyond their first semester unless all required transcripts are received.
What is an official transcript?
An official transcript is a transcript submitted to Sandhills Community College in a sealed unopened envelope, via electronic exchange, or faxed directly from the issuing institution. It is the responsibility of the student to request official transcripts be sent to Sandhills Community College.
How do I request an official transcript?
Students must request an official transcript from all previous institutions attended. High schools and post-secondary institutions have unique processes for requesting official transcripts. Contact the institution(s) or visit their website for transcript request instructions.

How can I receive credit for courses taken at other post-secondary institutions?
Sandhills Community College will consider granting credit for work done at other regionally accredited institutions of higher education. Courses accepted for transfer credit must parallel course offerings at Sandhills Community College as determined by the Director of Records & Registration, the Academic Dean, and/or the appropriate Department Chair. Courses approved to satisfy the NCCCS Comprehensive Articulation Agreement general education core, pre-major or elective course requirement will also be considered for acceptance as transfer credit. Transfer credit may be allowed only for courses in which a student has earned a grade of a ‘C’ or higher.
