Transfer students are required to complete all degree requirements with at least sixty (60) credits from Cornell University. Thus, a maximum of sixty (60) hours in transfer credit, for courses passed with a grade of “C” or above, may be allowed from other accredited colleges or universities.
Transfer credit is not awarded toward SHA Electives (except CIA).
Up to eighteen (18) credits may transfer toward SHA core required courses.
Up to fifteen (15) credits may transfer toward Non-HADM Electives.
Up to three (3) credits may transfer toward the University first-year writing requirement.
Up to twenty-four (24) credits may transfer toward Free Electives.
Cornell University does not accept credit for courses sponsored by colleges but physically taught in a high school to high school students, even if the college provides a transcript of such work.
Students who are currently accepted and enrolled may transfer in credit, but only from accredited colleges or universities. Preapproval is required.
AP Credit is accepted as free elective credit only (except HADM 1410 and the First-Year Writing Seminar).
For students requesting transfer credit toward 1000- and 2000-level SHA core:
Students must provide a detailed prior course syllabi (electronic or paper) to the SHA Registrar.
Syllabi will be reviewed by faculty to determine whether transfer credit will be awarded toward core.
Registrar will notify student of decision via email and make appropriate updates to records and student schedule.
Credit 3000- and 4000-level SHA courses are not generally accepted.
After matriculation, any student requesting to take an alternative first-year writing course must contact the Knight Institute for review.
