History Transfer Credit Application

Transfer Credit Application

Procedure for Requesting Transfer Credit for the History Major

  1. History Majors may only petition for a total of TWO to THREE courses outside of the department of History for transfer credit petition. This form is for History Major Credits ONLY.
    • Students may request up to two transfer credits if studying abroad for one semester, or transferring to Cornell from another institution as a sophomore.  Students may request up to three transfer credits if studying abroad for a full year, or transferring to Cornell from another institution as a junior.  Additionally, students may request up to three transfer credits if they are both a transfer student and also studied abroad for a semester.
  2. Compile a folder for each course for which you are requesting credit.  Please include:
    • The History Department’s Transfer Credit Form.
    • The form from either the Registrar or from Cornell Abroad requiring the Director of Undergraduate Studies signature.
    • A transcript or grade sheet, highlighting the courses for which you are requesting credit.
    • The syllabus for the course.  (This is essential.)  If the instructor distributed only a bibliography, compose a brief (2-3 sentence) description of the course structure, requirements, and grading.
    • Include one written assignment.  If the instructor did not return the work, or if oral exams comprised a significant portion of the grade, include a brief description (2-3 sentences) of the work you completed, but are unable to include in the folder.
  3. Please include all supporting materials in this webform, and submit.  You will hear back from the department once your application has been approved.  If you have any questions, please email the Undergraduate Coordinator at jly5@cornell.edu.
