Planning Sheets by Major 

SUNY Transfer Path courses are notated in blue and underlined on the planning sheets.

Areas to note on the planning sheets:

Foreign Language:  

  • Cortland's foreign language Degree Requirement can exceed the one-course requirement (101 level) for general education.  The Degree Requirement focuses on proficiency in the language rather than total credits earned.
  • Requirements on the sheet assume that you have no language proficiency and would need to begin at the beginning level I (101).  Cortland's sequence is beginning level I and II (101 and 102), then intermediate level I and II (201 and 202).  
  • You can fulfill the general education requirement (101 level) with:
    • 85 or higher on the New York State Regents exam in foreign language
    • 85 or higher as a final grade in level 3 of a foreign language in high school
    • Successfully completing level 4 or higher of foreign language in high school.   *  Send your high school transcript as part of your admissions application for verification.

General Education Category 4 U.S. History and Society: An 85 or higher on the New York State Regents exam in U.S. History allows a student to choose from more options in this category.  Courses recommended (HIS 200 or 201) assume that you do not have an 85 or higher, but will fulfill the requirement regardless of score.  

Cortland General Education categories 11 and 12 are specific to SUNY Cortland, and transfer students are eligible to be waived out of these 2 categories with 35 or more transfer credits. Therefore, courses in these GE categories are not recommended on the sheets.

 

SUNY Transfer Paths 

SUNY has created Transfer Paths that summarize the common lower division requirements at most SUNY campuses for similar majors within most disciplines. If you want to prepare for as many SUNY campuses as possible, the SUNY Transfer Paths will help you identify core coursework that will prepare you for multiple SUNY campuses.  Courses that are SUNY Transfer Path courses are noted on the transfer planning sheets in blue.
