Course Equivalency Guides

SUNY Upstate is an upper-division transfer and graduate college. Students in our bachelors programs complete a minimum 60 semester hours of prerequisite courses prior to enrolling. Students in our graduate degree programs complete prerequisite courses and a bachelor’s degree prior to enrolling.

The prerequisite courses are not taught at SUNY Upstate. Applicants take the prerequisite courses at another college prior to enrolling at Upstate. Applicants are able to attend the accredited college(s) of their choice to complete the prerequisites. Applicants who have questions about prerequisites may e-mail Student Admissions at admissfa@upstate.edu. Please include the name of the program you are considering in any correspondence.

Below is a list of course equivalencies for various community, 2 year and 4 year colleges. Additional course equivalency guides will be added as completed.

PLEASE NOTE: The following course equivalencies have been developed by SUNY Upstate Medical University as meeting the prerequisite course requirements for programs within the College of Health Professions. To determine which classes you need, check the prerequisites for your intended program and match them up with the course equivalencies below.Completing the prerequisites does not guarantee admission to SUNY Upstate or our programs. Some of the prerequisites may have prerequisites of their own that must be completed prior to enrolling in the course. It’s the prospective student’s responsibility to research this.

Prerequisites may be completed at any 2 or 4 year accredited college.
