Permission to Take a Graduate Course While an Undergrad:

Undergraduates who have completed 90 credit hours and whose grade point average is 3.0 or better may be allowed to enroll in suitable graduate courses numbered 500-599. Students must request approval of the department offering the course and their major department chairperson. The form is available online here.

Students may use such graduate courses either to meet undergraduate degree requirements or to meet degree requirements in a Fredonia graduate program they enter at a later time. Except for specific courses prescribed in an approved multi-award program,  no course may be used for both purposes by the same person. In no case will an undergraduate be allowed to enroll in a course numbered 600 or above.

SUNY Reverse Transfer Program:

The Reverse Transfer program is for students who have previously attended a SUNY community college, and transferred before earning an Associate degree. If you have met the degree requirements for that Associate degree now, through a combination of credit from the community college(s) you previously attended and Fredonia, then you could be eligible to earn your Associate degree.

To receive your Associate degree, your prior community college would need to review your credits earned from there as well as the credits earned from Fredonia and any other previous institutions. Once an initial degree evaluation has been completed, the community college would then inform you of what additional steps are needed in order to be awarded the Associate degree.

If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity to receive your Associate degree, please submit a reverse transfer request at:  https://www.suny.edu/transfer/reverse-transfer/. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact reversetransfer@suny.edu.  Once you have submitted your request, you will be able to track the progress of your request by logging into www.suny.edu/rtapp. You will be notified by the community college once your request has been reviewed and a decision has been made.

Transfer Credit For Currently or Previously Enrolled Students:

All currently enrolled students must complete a transfer credit approval form prior to taking courses at another institution.  Use the Transfer Credit Equivalency webpage to determine the course equivalency.  If the course is NOT listed on the page, attach a copy of the course description to the form for review. 

Obtain the signature of your department chairperson and General Education Coordinator if applicable, and return the completed form to the Registrar's Office.

Transfer Credit Appeal:

This process is for students who transferred in credit from a SUNY institution and do not agree with Fredonia’s decision regarding acceptance or placement of credit.
