Transfer Credit

It is Alfred University policy to provide transfer students with the greatest possible recognition of their previous college work while maintaining the integrity of its own academic programs. Courses are evaluated on a course-by-course basis and may considered from an accredited institution in which a student has earned a grade of “C” or better.  In courses graded pass/fail or credit/no credit, grades of “pass” and “credit” are accepted.

The maximum number of semester credit hours transferable toward any Alfred University degree program from all sources combined is 75, to include credit from other institutions, credit as recommended by the American Council on Education, and credit from standardized exams (AP, IB, CLEP or any other standardized exam program). The 75-credit-hour maximum applies to transfer credit earned both before and after admission to an AU degree program.

Regardless of the number of credits that are accepted in transfer, all students are responsible for completing the major and general education requirements for the program of study they select and must earn at least 45 credits in residence at Alfred University to receive their degree. "In residence" means courses offered by Alfred University on campus, at an extension site or through distance education. Students must complete their final 30 semester credit hours in residence.

Take a look at our current course equivalencies. Courses are evaluated and updated on an on-going basis by the Registrar’s Office.

If you would like a preliminary credit evaluation or if you are planning to visit campus and would like an evaluation done when you arrive, please send an electronic copy of your transcript to Kristen Vargason, Coordinator of Transfer Admissions.
