Internal transfers within the Education department:

Students who are enrolled in the education department and who wish to leave one education program and matriculate into another, must complete the appropriate application forms and must meet all admissions requirements for the new program. Candidates will be reviewed on the same basis as any new applicant to the College. When a candidate is admitted into a new program within the education department, Utica College courses that were completed as part of the old program will automatically transfer to the new program. When calculating cumulative GPA all courses taken at Utica College will apply.
