Transfer credit from accredited colleges usually is given for courses substantially similar to those offered at Hartwick College, completed with a grade of C or higher. A transfer student is required to attend Hartwick College for at least two academic years and to earn 60 credit hours to be eligible for a degree from Hartwick. Credit hours may be earned on a part-time or fulltime basis.
Hartwick does not accept Mathmatics credit for transfer courses below the pre-calculus level and does not count transfer courses towards the Writing Requirement (e.g. a Composition Course completed at another institution cannot be used to satisfy ENGL 110 Composition at Hartwick).
Hartwick College generally will honor the associate of arts or associate of science degree from accredited colleges by offering the equivalent of two years of credit. Associate degree candidates who are admitted must meet the Hartwick College graduation requirements; it is possible that this may take longer than two years in some cases.
Hartwick has articulation and transfer agreements with several two-year colleges.
The Office of the Registrar is responsible for evaluating transfer credit. Please contact Jane Bachman, Transfer Credit Evaluator, for more information.

Courses Taken Elsewhere During Regular School Year
Such study must be approved by the director of off-campus programs and/or the Registrar. No more than 8 credits (semester hours) can be transferred to Hartwick from a two-year college after achieving 60 credits at Hartwick (unless specific permission has been granted as part of an Individual Student Program). Grades for courses taken elsewhere are included when determining a student's eligibility for honors at Commencement. Forms for requesting approval of courses can be found here.
