Transfer Credit

All bachelor’s degree candidates are eligible to transfer up to 90 academic credits from previous educational institutions.  Students must successfully complete at least 30 academic credits at CUNY SPS while matriculated for the degree. 

During the transfer evaluation process, courses taken at other institutions are used to fulfill CUNY SPS requirements, where possible.  The credit value of transferred courses is assigned to match the credit value of the equivalent course. Other acceptable forms of transfer credit include assessment of prior learning via portfolio evaluation; credit for college-level subject-area examinations such as CLEP, UExcel or DANTES/DSST; and credit for ACE-evaluated corporate or military training.

Official transfer credit evaluations are made after a student is accepted and CUNY SPS has received final and official transcripts from all institutions attended.  Students can expect to receive the official transfer credit evaluation prior to registering for their first term of enrollment.  Transfer credits do not compute into the bachelor’s degree grade point average.
