Transfer Agreements

The EHS Certificate and the Associates of Applied Science Degree program prepares students for transfer to a four-year institution. We have formal transfer agreements with several universities located throughout the United States whereby acceptance is practically guaranteed and all credits earned at Scott Community College transfer automatically.

This can be very important for those students who may decide to continue their education in the health, safety and environmental technology fields. Additionally, many of these institutions offer online distance learning programs. The student can complete a Bachelor's Degree without moving to the university.

The following institutions currently accept credit earned through 's EHS program:

   California State University, Bakersfield

   Columbia Southern University, Orange Beach, AL

   Fort Hays State University, Hays, KS

   United States Coast Guard National Strike Force

   University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, IA

   Iowa State University, Ames, IA

   St. Ambrose University, Davenport, IA

   Mineral Area College, Park Hills, MO

   North Carolina A&T State University, Greensboro, NC

   Upper Iowa University, Fayette, IA 

Transferring into EHS

Transfer credit may be accepted from institutions that are accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges or its regional affiliates. Military credit may be accepted based on an evaluation of military transcripts (preferable with American Council on Education [ACE] guides).

Courses will only transfer if there is a direct comparison with a course in the EHS curriculum. Elective credit or course substitutions will be judged on an individual basis by the College Registrar. Transfer credit will be recorded on the academic transcript (denoted as a "T" on the transcript).

Students may find out which of their credits already earned at another college or the military will transfer to SCC and fulfill requirements for the AAS degree in EHS. The following procedure should be used:

Send a letter, fax, or e-mail to the SCC registrar requesting a transfer credit evaluation. Include:

  • Name, address, phone number
  • Social security number
  • Proposed major - Health, Safety and and Environmental Technology A.A.S. degree
  • College(s) sending transcript(s)

Ask the previous college to send an official transcript to:

           SCC Registrar
           500 Belmont Road
           Bettendorf, IA 52722

The same procedure should be used for evaluation of military training.

Notification of prior credits which will transfer will be by U.S. mail or fax to the student.

Students wishing to begin taking courses at another college toward the EHS AAS degree should have these courses evaluated ahead of time to make sure they fulfill SCC requirements.

Send the following, along with your name, address and proposed major, to the SCC Registrar for evaluation:

  • Course title
  • Course number
  • College name
  • Copy of the course description from the college catalog
