Credit is Earned in the Context of the Degree Program

Although you may have college-level learning from multiple sources, you will only use the credits that best meet the degree you have designed. Empire State University accepts credit recommendations for degree-seeking students and awards advanced standing credit when:

  • Learning components make sense in the student's degree program
  • Learning components do not duplicate other credits in the degree program
  • The student completed the learning at the same location and during the exact time period covered by the evaluation and credit recommendation
  • SUNY Empire directly receives official documentation from the issuing agency or organization
