TRANSFER SERVICES

Any student planning to transfer to a four-year college upon completion of associate degree requirements should be aware of the procedures necessary for a smooth transition. Transfer is a relatively easy process. However, students seeking specialized programs should choose their course of study at 鶹AV carefully to minimize future difficulties. Begin transfer planning during the first or second semester in order to apply for transfer during the third semester.

Consultation is available from the College’s the Coordinator for Transfer and Articulation in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement and other faculty members. Students planning to transfer into a teacher education program should consult with the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement on their plans as soon as possible after registering for classes at 鶹AV.

The likelihood of gaining admission to a particular program of study at another institution depends on:

  • Choice of appropriate course of study at 鶹AV
  • Number of applications for a particular major at the senior college
  • Grade point average at 鶹AV (institutions and/or majors in high demand are more competitive and require a higher grade point average for admission)

SUNY applications are available in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement. A student may apply to four SUNY units with one application. A New York State resident who is in the process of obtaining a 鶹AV associate’s degree and who is transferring directly to a SUNY baccalaureate campus may apply to up to four SUNY units with a waiver of the $50 per-unit application fee. An official college transcript must be sent from the Registrar’s Office directly to the undergraduate admissions office at the college(s) to which the student is applying. Students who have attended other colleges must request that those colleges also send transcripts.

For private or out-of-state colleges, contact their Admissions Office, and request a catalog and application forms for transfer students. Many college catalogs are available for student use in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement.

Admissions counselors from four-year colleges throughout the state visit the campus periodically to recruit students and assist in the transfer process.

TRANSFER AGREEMENTS

Transfer agreements with partner institutions ensure a smooth transition.

TRANSFER POLICY

The Registrar’s Office is responsible for evaluating all official college transcripts from students wishing to apply previous college work to current degree or certificate programs.

The process is as follows:

  1. Official academic transcripts from post-secondary institutions accredited by the New York State Education Department or a regional or national accreditation agency recognized by AACRAO, are evaluated for transfer credit.
  2. Official test scores as recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE) are evaluated for applicable transfer credit.
  3. Only courses that have a grade of C- or higher or a numeric value of 1.7 or higher as well as courses meeting the student’s program of study requirements will be considered for transfer into 鶹AV and will appear as transfer credit on an official academic transcript (no grades from previous colleges will be displayed nor calculated into the student’s cumulative grade point average at 鶹AV).
  4. Credit transferred will be converted to semester hours, and when a partial credit hour results from the conversion, it will be rounded down to the nearest whole credit.
  5. To receive a certificate or degree from 鶹AV, 50% of the required credits must be earned at 鶹AV.

Upon reviewing your transcript(s), credits accepted for transfer into a 鶹AV degree program may be viewed in your my鶹AV information account, using your C# and password. (Please contact the Help Desk at 315 501-1993 if you have any questions about my鶹AV access.) If you wish to challenge this review, you may do so by contacting the Registrar’s Office. You may be asked to submit a course description and or course syllabus for review by the appropriate division chair to determine whether the course is similar in content to a 鶹AV course. The division chair will render a decision to the Registrar’s Office.

NOTE: Transfer for Early Childhood or Education course credit will only be granted after transcript review by the Education Coordinator or Division Chair.
