Excelsior Program course credits earned with a reported grade of "C" or better are accepted by a wide range of colleges and universities throughout the country, with general acceptance within SUNY Community Colleges and institutions. Acceptance of credit for college level course work is under the domain of the individual receiving colleges and universities. Suffolk County Community College will accept all credits earned successfully through the Excelsior program.
An up-to-date database of catalogs for four-year colleges and vocational schools is available in the reference area of each campus library and on the library home page. Further transfer assistance and related materials, including information about transfer scholarships at many of Long Island's private and public colleges may be obtained from the Transfer and Counseling Center at each campus.
Students may obtain their SCCC ID number from their high school instructor or may use their social security number to access an unofficial copy of their transcript and view their SCCC grades through the SCCC student portal.
