Policy for Transfer Credit Earned in Spring 2020

Spring 2020 Grading/Credit Information: 

Binghamton University, SUNY, recognizes the conditions of Spring 2020 in evaluation of incoming college credit and will accept non-letter grade (Pass or Satisfactory) coursework for credit. 

For students entering Harpur College, up to 12 credits of non-letter grade coursework from the spring 2020 semester may fulfill major and minor coursework. Additional non-letter grade coursework may transfer in as elective credits. Additional non-letter grade coursework from Spring 2020 may be applied to requirements on an exception basis for students attending a college or university where non-letter grades are the only grading option.

Spring 2020 General Education Credit Information: 

Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding SUNY’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, when evaluating general education course credit earned during the spring 2020 term, transfer of credit is guaranteed at all SUNY campuses if a general education course is successfully completed with any passing grade, including a ‘P’ in a Pass/Fail grading system.
