How Transfer Courses Count at MVCC
The information on our growing transfer equivalency site is provided as a guide to how previous college credit work may transfer to MVCC. There may be some programmatic variations in how your transfer credit is applied. Final determination of transfer credit acceptance is ultimately made by the Associate Dean of your Academic Department.
You must provide official transcripts of all completed coursework in order for transfer credit to be applied. IMPORTANT: ONLY COURSES WITH A GRADE OF "C" OR BETTER WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR TRANSFER.
SUNY Transfer Appeal Process
If you disagree with Mohawk Valley Community College's decision on the granting or placement of credit that you earned at a prior SUNY institution, you have the right to submit an appeal to the Vice President for Learning and Academic Affairs.
You should be prepared to provide reasonable material to support your case, such as the course description or syllabus in question. The campus transfer representative will explain the process to you and let you know exactly what materials are needed.
Once all of the required information is received, the transfer appeal representative will provide you with a written response within 15 business days. If the decision finds merit to change the course to meet a major requirement, the representative will notify you, your Associate Dean and/or program coordinator, and will see that the change is made to your student record.
If the decision is unchanged or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may take your appeal to the SUNY System Provost by submitting the Student Transfer Appeal Form along with requested materials.
The SUNY Provost will respond to your appeal within five business days from receipt of the completed appeal application. If the decision finds merit to change the course to meet a major requirement, then MVCC will be notified to take appropriate action.
