• SUNY Albany - University in the High School (UHS) Program

    SUNY UHS is a program developed by and offered through SUNY Albany, which enables junior and senior year high school students with a B average or higher to earn college credits at an economical rate (currently $160 per four-credit course). In exceptional cases, and with SUNY's approval, sophomores with advanced academic standing may also be admitted to this course. Letter grades ranging from A - E are assigned by the instructor and become part of the student's permanent academic record at SUNY Albany. There is no S/U (pass/ fail) option. Credits earned through this program may also be eligible for transfer to colleges and universities around the country. As SUNY requires that the course is conducted at least 90 percent of the time in the target language, students selecting this course should be capable of and dedicated to using the target language virtually at all times. Grades will be based on participation, homework and writing assignments, oral projects and presentations, as well as exams and quizzes.

    Transferability of UHS Program/University at Albany Credits Experience shows that UHS Program/University at Albany credits earned with a reported grade of “C” or better are accepted by a broad range of colleges and universities throughout the country, with general acceptance by state-operated institutions and community colleges within the State University of New York System. Courses certified as fulfilling particular General Education Requirements by any institution in the SUNY system will fulfill those requirements at any other institution in the SUNY system without the necessity of individual articulation agreements (SUNY Trustee Resolution 87-114). While acceptance at other American colleges and universities is not and cannot be guaranteed, students are advised to contact the admissions offices of the schools they are particularly interested in attending to inquire about the transfer of University at Albany credits prior to enrolling in a UHS course. The decision to accept transfer credit from the University at Albany is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students are encouraged to save their syllabi for such purposes.
