Methods of Earning Credit

A student, regardless of matriculation status, who enrolls in a regularly scheduled Hudson Valley Community College course and satisfactorily completes the course with a passing grade will be granted the number of credits for that course as set forth in this catalog.

In accordance with the following guidelines, credit also is awarded through examination, transfer from regionally accredited institutions and evaluation of life experience. Credit will be granted provisionally through these methods until such time the student has been formally matriculated and has completed one term at the College.

Transfer credit will appear on the Hudson Valley Community College transcript with a “T” entered in the grade column and the credit will be included in the degree hours only.

No more than 50 percent of the minimum number of required credits for a degree or certificate may be granted by transfer, examination or evaluation.
