Students can determine how their courses will transfer to DYU by using the Online Equivalency Course Equivalency database. If the course equivalency is not found in the database, the student can request the evaluation of the transfer course for an equivalency to D’Youville course by submitting course syllabus via the Transfer Credit,
Course Substitution or Course Waiver Request

Courses that do not have direct equivalency at D'Youville will be transferred as open electives at the corresponding course level.

Certain majors or programs may require higher grades and specific timelines to transfer in specific areas. Programs reserve the right to refuse to accept transfer credit hours in fulfillment of their major requirements.

Transfer credits completed at institutions with other than regional accreditation will be evaluated for transfer purposes on a case-by-case basis.

Grades for transfer credits do not appear on the D’Youville University transcript and are not included in the student’s GPA calculation.

Students may transfer up to half of the credits required for their major course or program of study. Students entering D'Youville University with a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, as determined by the Registrar's office, are not required to complete general education requirements or writing intensive requirements. However, they must make up any prerequisites for the major curriculum and other program and
degree requirements.

Residency requirement: all students must complete a minimum of 30 semester credit hours (15 for associate degrees) at D'Youville and meet all of their major/ program
and other curriculum requirements to graduate from the University.
