Freshmen who complete college level course work while in high school must submit official

SUNY Delhi will award college credit based on test scores in the following:
- Advanced Placement (AP) program
- College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Transfer credit evaluations are not final until official college transcripts and/or
score reports for college level examinations (AP, CLEP, IB, etc.) are received.
Students who complete college level course work must submit official transcripts and/or

The academic policy regarding transfer credit is as follows:

- To earn a baccalaureate degree at SUNY Delhi, students must complete a minimum of 25% of credits in residence toward the degree, half of which must be within the major. Remaining credits transferred from another institution must be approved by SUNY Delhi in order to count toward the degree requirements.

- Freshman Composition (ENGL 100), or its equivalent, will transfer with a grade of at least "C."
