General Education for Transfer Students

Students transferring to SUNY Potsdam with a SUNY college A.A. or A.S. degree, having completed 30 semester hours of General Education including 7 out of 10 SUNY General Education requirements (must include Math and Basic Communication), will be exempt from any additional Potsdam General Education Foundations and Modes of Inquiry requirements not already satisfied.

Transfer students must complete Potsdam's Modern Language requirement on a pro-rated basis, a PE/HW requirement (2 courses), and Speaking and Writing Intensive requirements if not already satisfied at the transfer college.  The SI and WI requirements are typically satisfied by completion of upper-division major course work.
