Transfer Students

(Admission with Advanced Standing)

Students desiring to transfer to Herkimer College from another college are requested to submit an official transcript of their work to the Admission's Office for evaluation and to follow the regular admissions procedure. Students earning a degree or certificate from Herkimer College must successfully complete, at Herkimer College, 30 hours for the degree and 15 hours for the certificate of the total hours required for the program.

Only grades of “C” or better will be considered for transfer credit. Records from other colleges will be evaluated in terms of academic credit applicable to the course offerings at Herkimer College.

In the case where the transfer of credit(s) is denied and the student wishes to appeal, the Provost’s Office will review the credits and provide a decision. The student has the ability to make a second appeal with SUNY System Administration Provost’s Office. Their decision would be the final decision and no further appeals would be permissible.
