"I came to Southern Stae with the intent of transferring on to a four-year college to pursue a bachelor's degree. During my time at Southern State, my career path changed for the better, and I have Southern State to thank for this. They really helped me transition from high school to college, and to figure out what I wanted to do next."
"My experience while attending Southern State was fantastic. As an SSCC student. I was provided with the opportunity to be part of intercollegiate athletics through my participation in soccer. I made a lot of friends, many of whom I am still friends with today. I also was able to save thousands of dollars and transfer the majority of my credits earned at Southern State."
"The faculty and staff were also great. Each and every person that I came into contact with helped me in one way or another to get to where I am today. Whether it be advice or simply lending an ear between classes, each individual was there for me. Attending Southern State was an amazing experience."
Gregory Lawson | Southern State Transfer
"I decided to attend Southern State because it was affordable, close to home and I knew it would prepare me for a four-year college. After two years at Southern State, I transferred to Shawnee State University. Transferring was a simple, stress-free experience. All of my Southern State credits transferred seamlessly! This allowed me to gain an advantage over other students. Southern State helped me achieve my goals!"
Cory C. | SSCC Transfer Student
"After one year at Southern State, I transferred my credits to the University of Cincinnati where I earned my bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. My transfer experience was stress-free and cost effective. I received a four-year college education at a third of the price. I would definitely recommend Southern State to anyone thinking about college. It is cost efficient and promotes a smooth transition from high school to college."
Miranda C. | SSCC Transfer Student
"After attending Southern State, I transferred to the College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati. Transferring was extremely easy to do and all of my credits were accepted. Attending Southern State gave me an advantage over other students because I had already completed my core level credits at a much lower cost. Transferring credit hours lightened the work load that I had to take each semester. This is a direct benefit of choosing Southern State."
