Transfer Admission Requirements
Students who transfer to Cobleskill from other accredited colleges may be admitted with advanced standing. Transcripts will be evaluated and credit may be granted for credit courses from accredited colleges, as certified by the Registrar, in which grades of “C” (2.00) or better were earned, subject to evaluation by the appropriate division dean. If the student's incoming cumulative average is “C” (2.00) or better, credit for “C–” or “D+” may be accepted for elective credit only.
Transfer applicants are required to submit official transcripts from all colleges attended to the Office of Admissions. Transfer applicants will need to submit high school transcripts and/or verification of high school equivalency if:
- Fewer than 30 college credit hours will be earned prior to application submission
- Financial Aid is required to help fund the cost of attendance
Transfer students' academic standing and eligibility for retention will be judged against the cumulative quality point average requirement based upon total hours completed at Cobleskill and transferred.
Transfer Articulation/Joint Admission Agreements
SUNY Cobleskill has many “2+2” transfer articulation agreements and joint admission agreements with colleges and universities, both in and outside New York State. Agreements may include guaranteed admission into parallel programs, junior standing, full transfer credit and the opportunity to complete a bachelor's degree in two additional years of study.
SUNY Transfer Credit Appeal Process
Once you are accepted, you will receive a transfer evaluation. The transcript evaluation will show how your prior courses will be accepted in transfer and apply toward your major. If you are transferring from a SUNY institution and you do not agree with SUNY Cobleskill’s decision on the granting or placement of credit that you earned at a prior SUNY institution, you have the right to submit an appeal to your campus transfer representative. In order to submit an appeal, please contact the Registrar’s Office with the specific information on which courses you are questioning. Please appeal via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or make an appointment to meet the Assistant Registrar, Jill Brinkman, by calling 518-255-5517.
If you still do not agree with your campus’ decision, or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost. You can submit the appeal by filling out the student appeal form http://www.suny.edu/provost/academic_affairs/studentform.cfm, and sending it along with requested material via email to:
TransferCredit@sysadm.suny.edu, or send via certified mail to:
Dr. David Lavallee
Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
SUNY System Administration
One University Plaza
Albany, NY 12246
The SUNY Provost will respond to your 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.
If you have questions on this process, please contact Robert Kraushaar (email: Robert.Kraushaar@suny.edu). The appeals process and necessary forms can also be accessed at the SUNY Provost website http://www.suny.edu/provost/academic_affairs/studenttransferappeal.cfm
