SUNY Transfer Appeal Process

Transferring Course Credit from a SUNY School

Students who are transferring SUNY courses to UB and wish to appeal the transfer credit evaluation and course equivalencies awarded by UB may utilize the SUNY Transfer Appeal Process.

To file an appeal, UB students should follow these steps:

  1. Complete the UB Transfer Credit Appeal Form (PDF)
  2. Include catalog descriptions for the course and all courses listed as prerequisites to the course
  3. Include a course syllabus for the course being petitioned

The Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs will acknowledge by email (or mail if email isn’t available), the date your appeal was received. VPUE will provide a final UB response in the form of a SUNY Transfer Credits Campus Response Form, by email (or mail if email isn’t available) within ten (10) business days or fifteen (15) business days when the university is not officially in session, excluding official New York State holidays. Students have the right to appeal UB’s final decision directly to SUNY and will be informed of that option in the event the student’s appeal is denied at UB.
