SCC has agreements in place with 11 other colleges and universities
Those attending Spartanburg Community College who want to continue their education and pursue a bachelor’s degree can do so at Converse University now. The leadership of the two schools signed agreements on Friday to develop a block transfer program that offers SCC graduates who successfully complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree the chance to enroll at Converse toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree.
Dr. Michael Mikota, president of Spartanburg Community College, stated, “With each initiative we launch, we further denote that Spartanburg Community College is leading higher education efforts to advance opportunity and economic vitality in the Upstate of South Carolina. Bar none, we provide our communities with a well-educated workforce and limitless options for individuals to continue their educational journey. Direct transfer partnerships, in concert with our free tuition initiative, have made tremendous impacts to the communities we serve that will be felt for generations to come."
Those seeking to transfer directly to Converse must fulfill all prerequisite requirements at SCC and follow all requirements for admission processes and timelines as outlined in Converse University’s undergraduate catalog.
This is not the first agreement SCC has made with a four-year university. Since May 2021, the school has signed block transfer program agreements with USC Upstate, Gardner-Webb University, and Limestone University. They also have transfer agreements in place either for general education or specific programs with Anderson University, Belmont University, Clemson University, Coastal Carolina University, Lander University, MUSC, Presbyterian College, and Spartanburg Methodist University.
