In order to evaluate your credits, we must have official transcripts from every college or university you have attended. Please complete the Transcript Request Form and send it to your current or previous school(s). Transcripts must be sent directly from the school(s) to SFBC in order to be considered official.
Transfer Credits to SFBC from Institutions Outside the US
To transfer credits to SFBC from institutions outside the US, we need a transcript evaluation with course-by-course with GPA (Grade point average). The evaluation must be made by a member of NACES (Nacional Association of Credential Evaluation Services). There is a link below where you may check active members.
With this evaluation, you may officially request SFBC a transfer credit evaluation, this process takes up to 2 weeks after you give your credit card information to the billing department at firstname.lastname@example.org. (These transfers fees are between 50 to 200 dollars depending on the number of credits transferable.)

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the Registrar.
Course Transfer Requirements
We expect you to be in good standing with your previous school with at least a 2.0 GPA when you transfer. Your SFBC GPA will not be affected by any GPA received at another school.
According to the Department of Education, students who transfer from nonpublic institutions that participate in the SCNS enjoy the same rights to guaranteed course transfer as students from Florida public institutions. Courses with the same prefix and last three digits – those that have been deemed equivalent by an SCNS faculty discipline committee – are guaranteed transfer to another institution offering that course (subject to standard system-wide exemptions). This credit will satisfy institutional requirements as though the student took that course at the receiving institution. No additional documentation is required to validate the transfer of equivalent courses; in the process of assigning course numbers, the Department of Education has already ensured that the teaching faculty possess credentials comparable to those at regionally accredited institutions. Again, receiving institutions must award this transfer credit for equivalent courses regardless of whether the accreditation of the participating institution is regional or national.
