SUNY Transfer Credit Appeal Process

Once you are accepted, you will receive a transfer evaluation which will show how your prior courses will be accepted in transfer and apply toward your major.  If you are transferring from a SUNY institution and you do not agree with SUNY Cobleskill’s decision on the granting or placement of credit that you earned at a prior SUNY institution, you have the right to submit an appeal to your campus transfer representative.  In order to submit an appeal, please contact the Registrar’s Office with the specific information on which courses you are questioning. Please appeal via e-mail to, or make an appointment to meet the Assistant Registrar, Jill Brinkman or Candy Hoffman, by calling 518-255-5521.


If you still do not agree with your campus’ decision, or you have not received a response in 15 business days, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost.  You can submit the appeal by filling out the student appeal form, and sending it along with requested material via email to:, or send via certified mail to:
