Transfer Credit Evaluation
New Transfer Students
Students who are transferring from another institution may have official transcripts sent to the Office of Admission at Ithaca College. The Office of Admission will then process the information and send the transcript to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation. Approximately three weeks from the date of acceptance, the student should receive an evaluation of the coursework on the transcript in the mail. If a student wishes to have an evaluation prior to acceptance, he/she should contact the Admission Office at (607) 274-3124.
Ithaca College currently accepts Advanced Placement Exams, coursework taken through an accredited Community College during high school, CLEP exams, International Baccalaureate Exams and A-level exams from foreign schools so long as the grade received is equivalent to a C- or higher and the course is not developmental in nature. Questions about accepting courses toward completion of a degree should be directed to the Registrar's Office.
Current students who wish to take courses elsewhere should get a Petition for Transfer Credit form from the Registrar's Office. It must be approved by the student's adviser, the chair of the relevant department, and the dean of the student's school. These approvals should be obtained before they take the course. For more details, refer to the section of the Undergraduate Course Catalog entitled "Credit from External Sources."
If the course(s) fall within a student's last 30 credit hours at Ithaca College, they will also need approval of the senior credit requirement waiver section located on the back side of the Petition for Transfer Credit form. For more details, refer to the section of the Undergraduate Course Catalog entitled "Senior Credit Requirement."
