Transfer Students

Students who transfer to Cornell from another college or university will be awarded one term of physical education credit for each full term of academic transfer credit they are granted by Cornell. Transfer students entering Cornell as sophomores or juniors are not usually required to take physical education classes for credit nor are they required to take the Swim Test.

Each student should clarify his or her transfer status with the appropriate college office. Transfer students subject to the credit requirement must take the swim test before signing up for an elective.
