Course Equivalency Tool


The following course equivalencies are based on current information. Equivalencies are reviewed frequently, and are subject to change without notice.

Inclusion on this site is not a guarantee of transferability, but rather, a guide to Oneonta equivalencies.


ABOUT EQUIVALENCIES: Courses from other academic institutions may be determined to be:

1. equivalent – This course is, essentially, the same as a course offered at SUNY Oneonta, and fulfills the same major and/or general education requirement(s).

2. elective within a department (example: PSYC 10E) – This course has not been determined to be equivalent to any courses offered at SUNY Oneonta; it MAY, however, fulfill major and/or general education requirements. Upon a student’s acceptance to the College, it is possible to have electives re-evaluated by the relevant department(s) for possible equivalencies. 

3. elective (example: ELEC 10E) – This course has no equivalent at SUNY Oneonta, and does not fit into any academic department. The credits may transfer in and apply toward the total number of credits required for graduation, but will not satisfy major or general education requirements. A maximum of 24 ELECTIVE credits may be transferred in. 

If a course is not listed, it has not been previously evaluated, and will very likely transfer in as an elective until it has been reviewed by the appropriate department.


It is important to note that General Education requirements may vary by major. Please check the undergraduate catalog for major requirements.

Prospective students: Upon acceptance to the College, an official credit evaluation will be processed by the Admissions Office.

Current students: You must receive prior approval from Academic Advisement before taking courses at another institution.
