SUNY Plattsburgh awards up to 67 transfer credits from two-year colleges and up to 84 transfer credits from all institutions. To receive credit, the admissions office must receive an official college transcript that lists completed courses and final grades. The following outlines other important considerations for awarding credit:

  • Credit is transferring from a regionally-accredited institution of higher education.
  • Courses are liberal arts or are applicable to non-liberal arts programs.
  • Courses are meeting the minimum grade required for transfer. Certain majors require a ‘C’ or higher in relevant coursework.
  • Courses intended to fulfill general education or major requirements must meet placing transfer credit guidelines.
