The Transfer Credit Report is a summary of previous college credits (course grades of C- or higher) that are accepted by Sage. Students and Faculty Advisors may view transfer course and equivalency information in SageAdvisor. Transfer credit is carefully evaluated and brought in based on the student’s declared major upon admission. Sage brings in only the transfer credits that will meet a specific major or degree requirement. For students starting a new major or career direction may find that not all of their previous college credits are accepted.
- Completion of 120 credits (minimum) is required for a bachelor’s degree.
- 1/2 of the major requirements must be completed as Sage institutional credits.
- 30 of the remaining 45 credits needed for degree completion must be completed at Sage.
- SCA students: may transfer in up to 75 credit hours toward a bachelor degree. Of this 75, a maximum of 66 credits may be transferred in from 2 year colleges.
- SPCE students: may transfer up to 90 credit hours. Of this 90, a maximum of 66 credits may be from 2-year colleges.

The left column of the report indicates your transfer college course information: number, title, grade and credits earned.
(Note: Grades do not transfer –only credits do).
|The right column reports how your transfer course was accepted at Sage. The number of credits accepted with a specific Sage course number (ie, MAT-110) or as a general equivalency (ie, MAT-ELCT). ELCT means course transferred as elective credits.|
*TR = Credits transferred to Sage. Credits are included in TOTAL completed credits on record.
*PR = Preliminary (or Pending). Course and credits coded as PR have not been transferred in as credit – yet. These courses are pending departmental approval. More information about the course may be needed. Or, in some cases PR could also mean that the credit cannot be transferred if student achieved the maximum allowable credits.
