Expanding Core Course Access
While the SUNY Transfer Paths identify the common lower division requirements within academic disciplines, not all campuses may offer these particular courses. This effort aims to expand access to core courses in the major by building a building a search function into the core course finder that will find comparable courses in the SUNY Learning Network. Students will then be able to take core courses online, if they are not available at their campus.
As shown in the mock-up example below, a student may be interested in completing the Criminal Justice/Criminology transfer path at Oswego. However, the ‘Corrections Process’ core course equivalent is not offered on campus. By clicking on the ‘Search SLN’ link, the student would engage a search function to find an equivalent online course drawn from SLN’s database of approximately 4,000 courses offered by SUNY campuses. In this way, students will have the option to stay at their campus while fulfilling all core courses in their major before transfer.
