Transfer FAQ: Accepted Students
TRANSFER REVIEW
What courses are eligible for transfer into SVA?
•   Credit is awarded as the courses you've taken align with the curriculum for your chosen SVA major.
•   Courses must be taken at the undergraduate level at a regionally accredited institution.
•   Courses are eligible for transfer with grades of C or higher.
•   Online, foreign language, ESL, music, performance, physical education, and business courses are not eligible for transfer.

How was my transfer placement determined?
•   The transfer of credit and level of placement is determined on an individual, case-by-case basis with special attention
    given to your portfolio, specific classes you have taken, your grades, your choice of Fall or Spring entry, and the
    Department Chair's approval.
•   Placement is primarily dependent on studio coursework and portfolio, not necessarily on the total number of credits
    previously earned.
•   Due to the studio-based nature of our curriculum, it is not uncommon that applicants who have completed significant
    coursework in only the liberal arts get placed in the first-year program of their department.

What courses have I been exempted from taking at SVA?
•   Your transfer credits and placement with SVA can be found under Your Enrollment Steps in the applicant portal, located
    under "Resources" on the right. Please note that courses awarded as elective credit are not listed as exemptions.

Does SVA accept AP, IB, CAPE or A-Level results for credit?
•   AP exam results should be submitted to Academic Advisement for evaluation. Any exemptions will be noted by your
    Academic Advisor upon course registration. Contact acadadvis@sva.edu for more information.
•   Students who earn scores of 5, 6 or 7 on the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma, higher-level (HL) examinations in
    certain subjects may be awarded humanities exemptions by Admissions. Contact Asha Sheshadri at asheshadri@sva.edu
    for more information on specific exams.
•   For GCE A-Level exams with grades of C or higher and CAPE exams with grades of 1, 2 or 3, credit may be awarded. All
    students must submit an official course-by-course evaluation to Admissions from ECE or WES.

RE-EVALUATION
I have additional coursework in-progress at my current school. Will these credits transfer to SVA?
•   Upon the receipt of an updated official college transcript, Admissions will re-evaluate your file for additional transfer
    credit. If any updates are made to your exemptions, you will be notified via email. Please note, “official” means that
    transcripts must be sent directly to SVA from the issuing institution.
•   Admissions will re-evaluate credits through the end of the course adjustment period of your first semester at SVA
    (typically mid September for students entering in the Fall term).

I didn’t get credit for a course I thought would transfer in. Can my credits be re-evaluated?
•   Please submit any questions about your credit awards to the Manager of Transfer Admissions, Asha Sheshadri, at
    asheshadri@sva.edu. Please include course descriptions for the credits in question. It is important to keep in mind that
    credits are awarded only as they align with the curriculum of your intended major. Re-evaluation does not guarantee that
    additional credit or updated placement will be granted.

I’m considering enrolling in additional courses this summer prior to attending SVA. What should I take?
•   Typically, Humanities and Art History courses are good options to consider for additional credit.
•   The transferability of an additional course depends on credits that have already been approved for transfer into SVA along
    with the curriculum of your intended major. You may review the requirements for your intended SVA major at
    sva.edu/regbook.
•   You are welcome to submit a description for any courses you may consider taking to Admissions for a recommendation.
    Please keep in mind that additional credit may only be awarded upon the submission of an updated transcript listing
    grades and credits earned.

Transfer FAQ: Accepted Students
REGISTRATION
How do I begin the registration process?
•   Submit the $500 nonrefundable enrollment fee at sva.edu/enroll to secure a space in your intended program. Enrollment
    fees received after the uniform reply date of May 1 will be processed as space remains available in your chosen
    department.
•   Once you submit the non refundable enrollment fee, you will receive a registration packet which includes details on how to
    register online. Submit the SVA Student Health form to Student Health and Counseling Services to gain clearance to
    register. This office can be contacted at health@sva.edu.
•   After the August 1st tuition billing deadline you must contact Student Accounts to receive financial clearance before you
    will be able to register.

What courses should I register for at SVA?
•   Log in to myservices.sva.edu using your MyID username and password listed on your acceptance letter/email. Confirm
    your Emergency Contact information, and add your courses to your schedule. You’ll see that the credits you’ve
    transferred in have already been noted under the “my progress” tab. Once you’ve selected your remaining requirements,
    submit your schedule to your Academic Advisor for review. Once submitted, your Academic Advisor will be in touch with
    you to finalize your registration. Detailed instructions are available on myservices.sva.edu from the Admissions
    Prospective Students tab. You may also watch an instructional video at sva.edu/regvids.
•   For assistance with online registration, contact Academic Advisement at 212.592.2540 or email acadadvis@sva.edu.
    Please include your full name, SVA ID, program and date of birth in any correspondence.

What courses have I been exempted from taking at SVA?
•   Your transfer credits and placement with SVA can be found under Your Enrollment Steps in the applicant portal, located
    under "Resources" on the right. Please note that courses awarded as elective credit are not listed as exemptions.

My credits and / or placement may change once I submit my updated transcript. Should I register for classes now, or wait
until my updated transcript has been re-evaluated?
•   It is possible to register for classes now based on your current exemptions. If any adjustments are made to your
    credits/placement after registering for classes, your Academic Advisor would be notified to assist you with making the
    necessary adjustments to your schedule.
•   Please keep in mind that after the August 1st tuition billing deadline, you will need to gain Financial Clearance before
    being able to register. Late registration may also impact housing placement.

DEFERRALS
I have additional coursework in-progress at my current school. Will these credits transfer to SVA?
•   Not all transfer placements are possible each term. You can confirm how a deferral may impact your transfer credits by
    emailing asheshadri@sva.edu.
