Transfer Credit Information
Each new SCA and SPCE accepted transfer student receives a Transfer Credit Equivalency Evaluation Report. This report is a summary of how all of your previous college credits (course grades of C- or higher) are accepted by Sage. Students and Faculty Advisors can view transfer course information in SageAdvisor.
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. 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. [For SPCE students, 90 credits may be transferred in. Of this 90, a maximum of 66 credits may be from 2-year colleges.]
- Note: A minimum of 120 completed credits is required for a bachelor degree.
