Spring 2020 Transfer Guidance for Courses with Pass/Not Pass Grade Mode
SUNY Morrisville is committed to maximizing your transfer credits and will extend flexibility in our transfer credit policies on a case-by-case basis.
Transfer credit is guaranteed at all SUNY campuses if a SUNY general education (SUNY-GER) course is successfully completed with any passing grade, including a ‘P” in a Pass/Not Pass (P/NP) grading system.
A Passing grade counts as successful completion for the SUNY-GER area at any campus.
However, a P/NP grade may not satisfy requirements outside SUNY-GER and Pass/Not Pass grades earned from a non-SUNY institution may require that the student repeat the class to earn a specific grade, such as:
- Programs that have a GPA requirement of a minimum course grade for courses in the major.
- Courses require a minimum grade in order to progress to the next course in the sequence.
- Academic programs that involve professional accreditation or certification that require specific letter grades.
- Programmatic accreditation may have requirements regarding the maximum percentage of courses that may be graded pass/fail and/or the particular kinds of courses that may be graded pass/fail.
You can receive a $2,000 annual award for a maximum of two years through a transfer scholarship. Eligible students must have, or be on track to have, an associate degree with a grade point average of at least 3.0. Admission into a baccalaureate degree program is required.
All students can apply for SUNY Morrisville Foundation Scholarship by February 1 of each year. Visit our Scholarships & Awards page for more information.
Students are required to live on campus unless you:
- Have completed a minimum of 60 college credits
- Live within 30 miles of the college and plan to commute
