Graduate Transfer Credit Approval

A maximum of 12 credits earned at other colleges and universities may be transferred into a Brockport degree program with the graduate department’s approval. No course may be transferred into a degree program that carries a grade of less than “B” on an official transcript. Paper copies of official transcripts received from other institutions for approval of transfer credit in Brockport graduate programs are no longer sent from the Office of Registration and Records to graduate departments for review. Official transcripts from colleges and universities previously attended are imaged as part of the admission process and are available online for faculty advisors’ review. Transcripts and paper files are no longer kept on file in the Office of Registration and Records.

To check for imaged transcripts:

  • Sign on to Web Banner

  • Go to Faculty Services

  • Go to View Student Imaged Documents

  • Enter the student’s Banner ID

    If the official transcript has been received and imaged, click on the entry to view and evaluate the transcript.

    If there is no entry for the appropriate transfer institution, the official transcript has not yet been received. The student will need to have an official transcript sent to Brockport.

  • To approve and accept courses for transfer credit, please complete the Graduate Transfer Credit Approval Form available on the Office of Registration and Records web site under Forms Page.

  • Submit the form to Registration and Records for processing. Accepted transfer credit will be entered on Banner and updated on the degree audit.

PLEASE NOTE:

If a student takes a course at another institution after matriculation at Brockport, the student must have an official transcript showing the final grade sent to the Office of Registration and Records as soon as the final grade is available to prevent any delay in degree posting due to missing credits and/or requirements. When received, the transcript will be imaged and available online for the faculty advisor’s review. To accept the credit, please complete and submit the Graduate Transfer Credit Approval Form (see bullet above) to Registration and Records for processing.

Transfer credit has not been officially accepted for the student’s program until the official transcript has been received and imaged, the completed approval form submitted to the Office of Registration and Records and the credit updated on Banner and the degree audit.
