    Anatomy, physiology, chemistry and microbiology courses expire after 10 years. Decker requires comprehensive examinations in expired prerequisite subject areas or a repeat of coursework to demonstrate proficiency.

    All courses must be taken for at least three credits. It is expected that chemistry, anatomy and physiology include a laboratory component.

Candidates are encouraged to contact the Decker Division of Advising and Academic Excellence with questions regarding transfer courses. Required prerequisites may be taken in person or online at any accredited college or university.

Note: General education requirements will not be evaluated, visit for more information regarding Binghamton's general education requirements.

This form is appropriate for students interested in the following programs: 

Admitted sophomores must have one of the following combinations of prerequisites completed by their intended start date:

♦ Chemistry I, Chemistry II and Introductory Biology

♦ Anatomy and Physiology I, Anatomy and Physiology II and Microbiology

Admitted juniors must have all prerequisites complete prior to their intended start date

Decker advising staff will review the prerequisite transcript evaluation request and send an unofficial evaluation via email. Please email or call 607-777-4954 with any questions. 


Admitted graduate students may petition to have courses previously completed at other institutions evaluated for transfer or waiver of credit to meet degree requirements.

Review the transfer of credit policy for additional information.
