York College reviews courses for transfer credit for all modes of delivery from all regionally accredited institutions.
Transfer credit is posted from official transcript(s) only. See the college’s official transcript policy for more information.
Transfer credit is posted for students who have matriculated to the college. We cannot award transfer credit after degree completion or if a student is no longer matriculated with the college.
Lab sciences without the lecture portion do not transfer.
Students who transfer in 30 credits or more at the time of admission to the college will be waived from the First Year Seminar (FYS) requirement. The waiver applies to the requirement for graduation but does not waive the credits to graduate; students need to meet the overall bachelors degree credit requirement. Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and Dual Enrollment credit does not count toward the FYS waiver. Veterans must take FYS 100.
Students who transfer in 60 credits or more at the time of admission to the college will be waived from the Constellation requirement, except Education majors. The waiver applies to the requirement for graduation but does not waive the credits to graduate; students need to meet the overall bachelors degree credit requirement.
Veterans who submit a Joint Services Transfer (JST) will receive credit for General Education Foundations: American Citizenship. Veterans who submit a JST and have been deployed will receive credit for General Education Foundations: Global Citizenship.
Beginning in Fall 2020, YCP offers a comprehensive general education transfer* for students with an Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), Associate Degree in Nursing (A.D.N.), Associate of Fine Arts (A.F.A.), or Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.) degree or other college transfer associate degrees from a regionally accredited institution.
*Students will need to consult the program advisor and course catalog regarding coursework and GPA requirements for specific majors and all programs leading to licensure/certification as some of these requirements are covered in general education courses. This applies to all Education students and students in programs requiring general education courses as part of the major requirements.
Students cannot receive transfer credit for a course that has already been taken at York College.
In accordance with AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrar and Admissions Officers) guidelines, transfer credits will be awarded as they are comparable and appropriate to the academic programs and general education requirements of York College. Credits may vary in how they are applied to satisfy degree requirements.
A maximum of 75 credits will be accepted from two-year colleges.
Transfer students admitted to the college with an associate's degree must satisfy all York College general education requirements not completed as transfer credit. Students must complete the last 30 credit hours in residence at York College to be eligible for a degree.
York College alumni who wish to enroll in the RN-BSN program may count credits earned at YCP towards the residency requirement for their BSN under the following circumstances: (1) the only credits earned by the student after graduation from an undergraduate program at YCP were counted towards an Associates' degree in Nursing, (2) if the student received a residency waiver as an undergraduate, only those courses taken at YCP after the most recent transfer credits will count towards the BSN degree, and (3) students need to complete at least 18 additional YCP credits as part of the RN-BSN program.
York College awards credit but not quality points for transfer work. Transfer grades are not computed into the cumulative grade point average except in the calculation of graduation honors.
Courses transferring as electives (1XX, 2XX, 3XX, 4XX) may transfer as specific courses. Please see the appropriate academic department for further information if you believe that these elective courses are equivalent to a York College course.
The following courses will not transfer:
Grades of Pass/Fail, “NC”, "D", "F", "W", "Inc", "Au" or "In Progress"
Continuing education units (CEU's)
Technical courses such as agriculture, electronics, drafting, dental hygiene, paralegal, EMT, etc
Remedial courses typically numbered from 000 to 099 and include English, math, reading and study skills courses.
If the Advanced Placement and/or CLEP credits are listed on another college's transcript for credit, we require an official copy of the score reports for York College to evaluate.
