If you took AP, IB or a college course in high school, you have probably already started earning college credit. It’s up to you to ensure SUNY New Paltz receives these official transcripts; your high school does not send them for you. Contact the appropriate institution:
|Where you earned the credit||Score or grade needed to receive credit*||For official transcript, contact
|Advanced Placement||3, 4 or 5||College Board|
|International Baccalaureate||5 or higher||International Baccalaureate|
|College course taken in high school||C or higher||The college that granted credit (Usually the Registrar’s Office)|
*the specific course equivalency varies by course and department
What you have to do:
Contact the institution that granted the credits and request that official transcripts be sent to:
Office of Undergraduate Admission
State University of New York at New Paltz
100 Hawk Drive
New Paltz, New York 12561-2499
What SUNY New Paltz will do:
- Assign course equivalencies. (See course equivalencies here.)
- Determine if a course fulfills a General Education or major requirement.
- Apply the credits to your New Paltz transcript so they count towards the 120 credits needed to graduate.
- Be better able to advise you accurately.
