Transfer of Credits

If you're considering transferring to Oswego, our admissions counselors would be happy to work with you to determine what credits you may transfer from your previous school.

Much of this takes place under articulation agreements that exist between two educational institutions to ensure efficient, effective transfer and guarantee continuous progress in degree completion. Both general and program specific articulations exist. We offer an online list of the many institutions with which SUNY Oswego has articulation agreements.

Program-to-program articulation aims to provide smooth transition in parallel programs, minimum time in completing the bachelor's degree and maximum transfer of credits. If you have attended another SUNY school, you can see which classes there will satisfy General Education requirements at Oswego by accessing SUNY's approved courses page.

The general articulation agreement allows students completing associate degrees to have particular general education requirements waived. Students who enter under the General Education 21 requirements with an AA, AS, or AAS degree from a SUNY institution that have completed three years of high school level foreign language or 101 level of a foreign language are exempt from any remaining foreign language requirements at SUNY Oswego. Students that don't fit either of those requirements but have completed an associate's degree from a SUNY institution are only required to take 101 level of a foreign language at SUNY Oswego. For more information on these requirements, visit our General Education page.
