Once you are a student at NYU, an initial Transfer Credit Report will be generated and can be accessed via NYU Albert, our electronic student system. All transfer credits will be listed as tentative until your final High School and College transcripts are received by NYU.
In order to receive SOC-UA course credit, the Sociology Department must determine if the course(s) you took at your previous institution(s) are equivalent to our courses here at NYU. To check your transfer course equivalencies, please contact Sharice Burroughs, Academic Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org and attach a copy of your unofficial transcript(s) with all previous sociology course syllabi. Each course will be reviewed for equivalency by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
All transfer students who plan on majoring or minoring in Sociology must complete these steps:
Students transferring into the Sociology major should plan to meet with Sharice Burroughs, the Academic Administrator to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major, possible study-abroad opportunities, course sequences, and any potential academic issues that may arise.
Where relevant, students should meet with Jeff Manza, Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss their post-graduation plans.
Please note: Students are only allowed to transfer up to four (4) courses into the Sociology major, or two (2) courses into the Sociology minor. For any course to count towards the Sociology major or minor, the student must receive a grade of C or better.
