An earned Associate in Arts degree from a SC technical college can fulfill all the Prerequisite and General Education requirements. Students will have to work with their SC technical college advisor to be certain they are taking the prescribed requirements for their associates degree. Use this Transfer Guide to help ensure requirements for both institutions are being met.

Here is a list of the CHE approved 86 courses that transfer between public colleges and universities in South Carolina. The Citadel may accept additional transfer credit from SC and other institutions not listed on the CHE approved list.
