Each new accepted transfer student receives a Transfer Credit Equivalency Evaluation Report. This report is a summary of how your previous college credits (course grades of C- or higher) are accepted by Sage. Students and Faculty Advisors may view transfer course information in SageAdvisor. Note: Sage brings in only the transfer credits that will meet a specific major or degree requirement. In addition, 1/2 of the major requirements must be completed as Sage credits. For students starting a new major or career direction, they may find that not all of their previous college credits are accepted.

At Sage College of Albany, students may transfer in up to 75 credit hours toward a bachelor degree. Of this 75, a maximum of 66 credits may be transferred in from 2 year colleges. Transfer credit is carefully evaluated and brought in based on the student’s declared major upon admission. For SPCE students, 90 credits may be transferred in. Of this 90, a maximum of 66 credits may be from 2-year colleges. A minimum of 120 completed credits is required for a bachelor’s degree.
