Transfer Credit Approval for Department Chairs

Students who wish to receive credit for courses taken at other institutions subsequent to their matriculation at St. Lawrence University must get written approval from the appropriate department chair on a transfer credit approval form. Student directions instruct a student to obtain a transfer credit approval form from the Registrar's Office and fill in their proposed courses, university/college chosen and term of attendance prior to asking a department chairperson for approval.  Students must submit this form PRIOR to enrolling in the course to ensure transferability.  Transfer credit approval is subject to university catalog policies regarding "credit from other sources". Department Chair Approval ProcessThe approval process includes the following for each proposed course:

  • Provide the specific course prefix and number for all courses to be used as St. Lawrence equivalent credit.
  • Note whether the course fulfills a major/minor requirement or general elective.
  • Sign the form.
