Transfer Credit Policy

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.
  • Up to twenty-one (21) credits may transfer toward SHA core required courses.
  • Up to eighteen (18) credits may transfer toward Cornell Distributive Electives.
  • Up to twenty-one (21) credits may transfer toward Cornell Free Electives.

Note: Cornell University does not accept credit for courses sponsored by colleges but taught in a high school to high school students, even if the college provides a transcript of such work.
