Transfer of Graduate Credit

Students seeking transfer credit at the time of admission must provide official transcripts to the Graduate Admissions Office at SUNY Poly. Only graduate courses with a grade of A, A-, B+, or B and completed less than seven years prior to matriculation are transferable. Transfer credit will not be included in the computation of a graduate student’s grade point average at SUNY Poly. A maximum of six hours of graduate work may be accepted for transfer credit by SUNY Poly, with the exception of the majors in Family Nurse Practitioner (MS) and Technology Management (MBA) which accept up to 12 credits, and Nursing Education (MS) which accepts up to 9 credits.

If after being admitted to a degree program, a student wishes to take and transfer courses from another institution, he or she must submit the Petition to take Courses at Another College to his or her advisor. This petition requesting such approval must include institution name, catalog number, title, and description of each course being proposed for transfer credit and the equivalent course at SUNY Poly. Upon completion of the course, an official transcript must be sent to the Registrar’s Office at SUNY Poly.
