SUNY Transfer Appeal Process
Everything you need to know.
If you do not agree with Herkimer 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 the Registrar's Office.
Note: You must have a grade of "C" or better in a course for it to be considered for transfer.
While each campus has a slightly different transfer appeal process, you should be prepared to provide reasonable material to support your case, such as the course description or syllabus in question. The campus transfer representative will explain the process to you and let you know exactly what materials are needed.
Once all of the required information is received, you’ll receive a written response within 15 business days. If the decision finds merit to change the course to meet a major requirement, the representative will notify you, the chairperson, and/or program coordinator, and will see that the change is made to your student record.
If the decision is unchanged, or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may take your appeal to the SUNY System Provost by submitting the Student Transfer Appeal Form along with requested materials.
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.
