Transfer and AP/IB Credits
All evaluated transfer credits (including AP and IB) are listed on your academic transcript and degree evaluation.
If a transfer course is not equivalent to an Ithaca College course it is typically listed as 18888, 28888, 38888, or 48888. For example, a course transfers in as ANTH 18888 and was an Introduction to Anthropology course at the institution where you took it. The reason it received a course number of 18888 is because it did not appear to meet the specific requirements of an Ithaca College course, so it cannot be designated as such at the time of evaluation by the Office of the Registrar. However, if you believe your transfer credits were evaluated incorrectly, you may request the respective department chairperson re-evaluate the transfer credit for course-specific credit. Re-evaluation does not guarantee the course will be designated as course-specific.
Typically mathematics courses are not evaluated by the Office of the Registrar. You must submit course descriptions to the Math Department (Williams 212B) for evaluation; please contact Ms. Arlene Dende (607.274.3107) for additional information.
Current semester coursework may not be listed on your Ithaca College academic transcript; please make sure you have had final transcripts and/or AP/IB scores sent to the Office of the Registrar. To ensure accurate preregistration in for Summer Orientation, please complete the Transfer Student Advising and Preregistration Questionnaire. If current semester transfer coursework and/or AP/IB credits are not listed on your unofficial Ithaca College transcript by the time you attend Orientation, you will need to communicate with your adviser any courses/credits that are pending transfer to Ithaca College.
NOTE: AP/IB scores must be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar at Ithaca College. We cannot evaluate these scores from another college's official transcript. Scores must be received directly by Ithaca College's Office of the Registrar and they must be sent by the College Board.
