When you transfer into any SUNY school, you will receive a transcript evaluation as close to the time of admission as possible, but no later than the payment of your enrollment deposit. The transcript evaluation will show how your prior courses will be accepted in transfer and apply toward your major. If you do not agree with your SUNY 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 your campus transfer representative. In order to submit an appeal:
How to Appeal a Course from a State University of New York (SUNY) School
If you think the course description matches, please send an email to [email protected] explaining which FIT course and/or requirement for your current degree you are trying
to fulfill, and attach a course description and/or syllabus from the other college.
Please indicate in the email that this is a SUNY appeal to be forwarded to the attention
of the Assistant Director of the Registrar's Office. Include your FIT student ID
number in all correspondence.
If you still do not agree with your campus decision, or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost.
You can submit the appeal by filling out student appeal form available on the Provost's website:
http://system.suny.edu/academic-affairs/student-mobility/student-transfer-appeal-process and sending it along with requested material via email to: [email protected] or send via certified mail to:
Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
SUNY System Administration
One University Plaza
Albany, NY 12246
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, the receiving institution will be notified to take appropriate action.
