Transfer Admission

Students walking on campus

Each year, hundreds of students attending other post-secondary institutions decide to transfer to D'Youville College.

We accept transfer students in both the fall and spring semester.

What Credits can transfer?

D'Youville accepts many college-level credits from regionally accredited two- or four-year degree-granting institutions.

You can check how the courses you've taken at other schools match D'Youville's courses and degree requirements through our Online Course Equivalency Website.

  • This website is for informational purposes only. After you apply for admission we'll evaluate your transcript and get back to you with an official credit evaluation. We'll also let you know what courses you'll need to complete a D'Youville degree.
  • After you apply and are accepted to D'Youville, you'll receive an official transcript evaluation that indicates how many of your transfer credits are accepted.
Transfer Credit Policies

The Registrar's Office determines whether college credits earned at other institutions can be transferred to D'Youville.

  • Typically, transfer credit is awarded for each course in which you earned a grade of "C" or better.
  • Credits from college's without regional accreditation are evaluated for transfer credit on a case by case basis.
  • You can transfer up to half of the credits required for your major and all of the credits required for the college's core curriculum.
  • You must complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours at D'Youville College and meet all of the major/program requirements and core curriculum requirements in order to graduate.
