The Destination SFA program serves highly motivated TJC students who, upon meeting the program’s criteria and graduating from TJC with an associate’s degree, will transfer to SFA toward the goal of completing their baccalaureate degree.
Students from TJC who wish to transfer to SFA are encouraged to earn an associate’s degree and complete classes sufficient to be core complete. To transfer to SFA, a student must have a cumulative transfer GPA of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale on all transferable courses. Some academic majors may have additional requirements. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admissions to major degree sequences as a native SFA student.
SFA will offer the Community College Transfer Scholarship to TJC students who meet stated criteria, and SFA will work closely with TJC students to inform them of other scholarship and financial aid opportunities. TJC students will be assigned a specific financial aid counselor at SFA, who can keep them updated on scholarship and financial aid information.
TJC students in the Destination SFA program will receive:
- Personalized academic assistance navigating the transition from TJC to SFA
- Regular visits to TJC by SFA Enrollment Management staff members, who will answer questions and offer assistance
- Priority assignment to a dedicated residence hall floor in TJC’s Crossroads Hall, which will be decorated with SFA-related artwork and memorabilia
- Opportunities to experience SFA campus culture through special events hosted on the SFA campus
- Access to the SFA Library System through the Interlibrary Loan Agreement
