Transfer Evaluation System (TES)

The Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics is continually looking to improve and expedite our processes for our students. We are happy to be able to provide a list of accredited institutions and those courses that have already been reviewed and approved by our college as appropriate for transfer back to SU. The table below lists the college or university that has offered the course and how that particular course articulates within our majors in Falk. It should be noted that this is an internal document specific to our Falk majors and that transfer by a student into another home college at Syracuse University or an outside institution not does guarantee equivalency or acceptance. This list will be updated at the end of each semester.

Important information about the TES listing

The equivalencies in the TES listing have been determined by reviewing individual petitions to faculty as submitted by our FALK College students. They are a best practice reference for our college and majors. Students who transfer to another college will have their transcripts / records re-evaluated by the new college.

The listing below was last updated periodically and is subject to change. Please check for updates.

The Maximum number of credits allowed for transfer from any combination of 2 year schools is 66 credits. Maximum number of 90 credits may be transferred (if degree applicable), to include 2 and 4 year schools, AP credits, IB credits, etc.

Minimum grade allowed to transfer credit back to SU is a grade of “C”. “C-” grades do not transfer (and) P/F grades only transfer with proof of grade being a “C” or better. P/F courses can only be used towards elective credits, not program requirements.

It is the student’s responsibility to request that an official transcript be sent directly to their college recorder upon completion of their course(s) taken at other institutions.

The Writing Department has made significant reductions in the classes that are now recognized as equivalent to WRT 105 and WRT 205. Any time you are going to petition for these classes to be fulfilled outside of SU, please refer to the WRT Course Substitute web page.

There is no need to petition the equivalencies listed within the table below.

Please note: courses that have an * next to them have been approved by either Biology, Chemistry or Math Departments.
