SUNY Oneonta

Transfer Credit and Grading Policies for Course Work Completed at Other Institutions

The transcript of each student who has completed course work at another institution prior to admission to SUNY Oneonta is evaluated by the Admissions Office to determine the number of semester hours and the appropriate course equivalents. Only credit satisfactorily completed at regionally accredited institutions of higher education or through external programs such as Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Regents College Exams (RCE), and the Armed Forces (USAFI and DANTES) will be accepted. Credit is granted on a semester hour (s.h.) basis. Students transferring from institutions on a quarter system will receive 2 s.h. of transfer credit for every 3 s.h. credits earned on the quarter system. Credits from other institutions may transfer, but only grades earned at SUNY Oneonta are used in computing the Oneonta grade point average.

Maximum pre-matriculation transfer credit rules: Total transfer credit awarded is restricted as follows: (a) a maximum of 66 s.h. from any combination of two-year colleges; (b) a maximum of 36 s.h. from external programs; (c) a maximum of 77 s.h. from a combination of two-year colleges, four-year colleges and/or external credit programs (e.g., CLEP, AP, etc.) with no more than 66 s.h. being granted from two-year colleges.

Students wishing to attend another college during the summer or winter, while on an Academic Leave of Absence, or concurrent with Oneonta course work, must contact the Academic Advisement Center (Netzer 100) to obtain prior approval. See restrictions under Post-matriculation Transfer Credit Policies.
