Transfer Credit Policies and Regulations
- The College at
Brockport awards transfer credit for course work completed at
institutions accredited by the Middle States Association of
Colleges and Schools and other such regional accrediting bodies.
Course work from other accredited institutions is accepted only
upon departmental recommendation. Other course work completed
at other regionally accredited colleges and universities prior
to matriculation at the College. We give favorable consideration
to courses that could appropriately be offered by the College,
whether or not equivalent courses currently are offered.
- Your credits will transfer; your grade point average (GPA)
will not. Transfer grades will not appear on your Brockport
- You can transfer a maximum of 64 credits from any accredited
two-year college. Therefore, although you may have completed
more than 64 credits at your community college, as perhaps listed
on your DARS degree audit report, don't forget that DARS will
only apply 64 of your credits (those most useful) toward your
Brockport degree. The maximum number of transfer
credits that can be applied to your Brockport degree (a combination of two-year colleges
and four-year colleges/non-college sources such as AP, IB, CLEP, etc) is 90 credits.
- Transferring a completed two-year degree (AA, AS or AAS)
from a regionally accredited college will guarantee that you
transfer at least 60 credits with full junior status, and up
to the maximum of 64 credits. However some students, particularly
those who enter with an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree,
may need more than 60 additional credits at Brockport to complete
the baccalaureate degree depending on their academic program.
- Evaluation of transfer credits can be finalized and transfer
credits awarded only after final and official transcripts from
each credit source (such as college transcripts, test scores,
or military documents) have been received by the College. Contact
the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (585) 395-2751 or by email at email@example.com if you
have any questions regarding outstanding transcripts
- Fifteen credits of any major, and fifty percent of any minor
or certificaiton program must be taken at the College at Brockport.
Individual academic departments my require more than those totals;
also academic departments will determine which courses are used
for their major.
- Credits transferred to The College at Brockport from institutions using
the quarter system are converted to semester credits by recording
two-thirds of their original value on the Brockport transcript.
- Remedial or developmental courses, some skills courses, and
courses for which Brockport has no departmental home may not
- The College at Brockport grants transfer credit for courses in which
a grade of "C-" or "D" has been recorded at another institution
only when the final grade point average for all transfer credit
is 2.0 or above. A "C-" or "D" grade earned in a course in a
student's eventual major discipline, if accepted for transfer,
can be counted as either an undistributed elective, or, depending
on departmental policies, may be accepted for credit in the
- Transfer credit awarded to students who do not qualify under
AA, AS, AAS policies stated above depends on: (a) regional accreditation
of that college, (b) the extent to which courses and course
credits meet the curricular requirements at The College at Brockport,
and (c) the grades earned.

Receipt of Final Transcripts
Transfer students are admitted with provisional matriculation
pending the receipt and evaluation of the final official transcript.
An official transcript is one that the student requests
each previous college attended to send to the Office of Undergraduate
Admissions at The College at Brockport. A final official transcript
shows all college courses completed at that college and includes
the listing of any degrees earned. It is the student's responsibility
to request final official transcripts from each college attended.
Failure to provide these transcripts by mid-term of the first
semester enrolled may limit preregistration opportunities to registration
with freshmen, regardless of student status.
