SUNY Orange Transfer Credit Guide

SUNY Orange's transfer equivalency site (T.E.S.) is intended as a guide for our prospective transfer students. SUNY Orange has partnered with CollegeSource to provide students with an up-to-date library of all of our established equivalencies from institutions that we have previously received transfer credit.

Please read the following information before you continue:

The information in this system is provided as a guide as to how classes at your current or former institution may transfer to SUNY Orange.

Final determination of transfer credit acceptance is ultimately made by the College Registrar, Director of Admission and Division Chairs upon admittance to SUNY Orange. You must submit sealed official transcripts of all completed coursework before a final determination can be made on credit transfer.

The fact that a course appears in this list is no guarantee that the course will transfer in your individual case. Additionally, some courses may not appear on this list, but may be eligible for transfer. Also, the fact that a class is listed from your current or former school is no guarantee that the school is currently offering the course or plans on offering the course in the future.

In general, no more than 30 semester hours of credit are acceptable for students transferring to SUNY Orange from another college or university. Credit courses successfully completed at a United States Department of Education approved college with a grade of C better, may be accepted to fulfill graduation requirements.

This guide is subject to frequent revision. The catalog dates for each institution reflect the latest revision date for transfer equivalencies from that school. We will be adding schools and additional courses to the list on a regular basis.

To check your credits, scroll down to find the institutions where you have previously taken courses and click on the link for the school. From there, you will be able to check to see SUNY Orange accepts the credit.

Additional Ways to ReceiveTransfer Credit

Transfer credit may also be granted based upon standardized exams such as Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Placement (CLEP), Military work completed or for credits earned at a college or university outside of the United States upon receipt of the required official documentation.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Transfer credit may be awarded to students who have taken the appropriate Advanced Placement examination (AP) and earned a minimum score of 3 as certified by an official score report sent from The College Board.

In some instances, granting transfer credit must be approved by the chair of the appropriate department. For example, final determination in awarding any transfer credit for English is by the English Department Chair based upon a review of the essay or writing sample provided by the student.

College-Level Examination Placement (CLEP)

Transfer credit may be awarded to students who have credits that are earned through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) provided that the student has taken the appropriate CLEP examination and earned a minimum a score of 50 as certified by an official score report sent from The College Board.

 Transfer Credit Help

How many credits can I transfer?

In general, no more than 30 semester hours of credit are acceptable for students transferring to SUNY Orange from another college or university. Only courses in which the student has received a grade of at least “C” will be considered. Credit will be evaluated for course work completed more than 10 years ago on an individual basis. It is SUNY Orange s policy to only transfer in credits that are applicable to the student s current degree or intended degree in the case of our health profession programs. Only those credits which apply to the student's area of academic interest will be considered.

If I am Active Duty Military, will I receive transfer credits?

Active Duty Military personnel may receive up to 45 credits and veterans up to 30 credits for courses and military occupational specialties if those courses or specialties are directly applicable to an area of academic interest at SUNY Orange. Students who have completed basic training in the U.S. armed forces may receive credit for both PES 100 and the one credit of physical activity requirement if required for their program of study.

Do I need to receive a certain grade in a course in order for it to transfer?

Yes.  Only courses in which the student has received a grade of at least C will be considered for transfer credit.

What if the course I took was online?

All transfer credit is evaluated on a course by course basis regardless of mode of delivery.

How do transfer credits effect my GPA?

Courses and credits, but not grades, are accepted. A student s CumGPA at SUNY Orange is calculated based upon course work at SUNY Orange only. Transfer credits from other institutions do not affect the CumGPA. Some time limits apply to transfer credit eligibility for certain degree programs and this determined at the time of the evaluation. Certain degree programs have time limits placed on transfer credit eligibility and this is determined at the time of the evaluation.

Can a currently enrolled student transfer credits in?

Yes. Before registering at another institution a Permission to Attend Form should be filled out and submitted for approval. This is the only way to guarantee the course(s) will be taken in transfer toward your current program of study. Permission to Attend forms should be submitted to Student Services Central at either campus.

How do you decide what my courses at other institutions are equivalent to here?

To have a course accepted as transfer for an equivalent to an existing SUNY Orange course, the course content, learning outcomes, and length/time of instruction of the course will be the primary determining factors to its transferability. While credits earned at an institution either accredited for post-secondary by one of the six regional accrediting agencies (e.g. Middle States Association) or by the New York State Board of Regents more readily transfer than others, SUNY Orange does not determine transferability exclusively on the basis of the sending institution s accreditation.

However, the institution must be accredited for post-secondary by an agency the USDE recognizes and if the institution is not accredited by one of the above regional or state agencies, a complete course syllabus may be required to determine transferability rather than the usual brief catalog course description. This will result in slower turnarounds of such evaluations.

Whenever the situation requires a more complete course description or a detailed course syllabus, it is the responsibility of the student seeking the transfer credit to obtain copies from the prior institution and provide this information to the Records & Registration Office.

Can I appeal the transfer credit evaluation?

Yes.  If after obtaining a transfer credit evaluation a student wishes to appeal the evaluation, they may do so by making an appointment with the Registrar or sending an e-mail to transfercredit@sunyorange.edu explaining their concern. If the student is not satisfied with the Registrar s decision, they may appeal to the appropriate Department Chair within 10 business days after the Registrar s appeal decision is made. If the student wishes to appeal a Department Chair s decision, they may do so to the appropriate Associate Academic Vice President within 10 business days of being informed of the chair s appeal decision. The decision of the appropriate Academic Associate Vice President is final.

In addition to the above, SUNY has established policies to guarantee the transfer of credits for general education courses and courses taken in the first two years in the most frequently transferred majors. These policies guarantee that general education credits and credits in the primary courses in the most popular disciplines transfer throughout the system.

If a student does not agree with your SUNY college's decision on the granting or placement of credit earned at a prior SUNY institution, you have the right to submit an appeal to SUNY Orange s transfer campus representative which is the Vice President of Academic Affairs or their designee.

The student should be prepared to provide reasonable material to support their case, such as the course description or syllabus in question. The campus transfer representative will explain the process and let the student know exactly what materials are needed.

Once all of the required information is received, the expectation is that the transfer appeal representative will provide the student with a written response within 15 business days. If the decision finds merit to change the course to meet a major requirement, the representative will notify the student, the chairperson and/or program coordinator, and will see that the change is made to the student s record.

If the decision is unchanged, or the student has not received a response in 15 business days, the student may take their appeal to the SUNY System Provost by submitting the Student Transfer Appeal Form along with requested materials.

The SUNY Provost will respond to the student s appeal within five business days from receipt of the completed appeal application. If the decision finds merit to change the course to meet a major requirement, the receiving institution will be notified to take appropriate action.

Remember, this additional appeal process is only available when a student challenges SUNY Orange s decision not to transfer in credit earned at another SUNY institution.
