General Transfer Articulation Agreement for Bachelor Programs

This agreement states the conditions for under which SUNY Oswego will accept credits earned by students attending SUNY Corning Community College toward the attainment of a Bachelor's Degree from SUNY Oswego.

Bachelor's Degree Programs

Students may transfer into any bachelor's degree programs given they meet the admission requirements for the particular programs of study.


SUNY CCC students planning on completing their bachelor's degree at SUNY Oswego should apply the semester prior to enrolling at Oswego. The priority admission deadline for fall semester is March 1st. The priority admission deadline for spring semester is November 1st.

GPA Requirements vary by major and number of credits completed at time of application. A cumulative GPA of a 2.3 or higher will be considered for transfer students applying to most majors with at least 24 credit hours completed. If less than 24 credit hours are complete at time of application, a minimum GPA of a 2.5 will be required. Biology and Zoology require a minimum GPA of 2.5. All majors leading to education certification required a 3.0 for consideration.

Transfer of Credits

Students who have completed a A.A., A.A.S., or A.S. degree will be accepted as juniors. A maximum of 60-67 credit hours will be applied towards the Oswego bachelor's degree. Although grades of "D" are transferable, they may not be used to satisfy major or cognate (major-imposed) requirements in some program. A maximum combined total of 54 credit hours in any one-discipline can be applied to the Bachelor of Arts degree requirement.

General Education Requirements

Students who transfer to SUNY Oswego after completing the 30-credit SUNY General Education Requirements (SUNY GER, July 2010) or equivalent of SUNY GER at a previous institution (or institutions) are exempt from all of Oswego's specific general education requirements. Upon acceptance at Oswego, these transfer students will have completed the General Education Requirement at Oswego.

Students who transfer to Oswego who have not completed 7 out of 10 categories and 30-credit hours of SUNY GER upon acceptance will be required to complete the remaining SUNY Oswego General Education Requirements.
