Farmingdale State College helps bridge the gap between high school and college-level study through University in the High School (UHS). Academically-motivated high school juniors and seniors looking to get a head start by earning college credits can enroll in UHS. 

UHS allows students to earn college credit, at reduced tuition, for a college-level course they take at their high school. These credits can be used to pursue a degree at Farmingdale or transferred to another institution. Participating in rigorous college-level work while in high school will undoubtedly contribute to your overall development and success, and may help you reach your academic goals.

Transfer Your UHS Credits

Upon successful completion of a course, a student may request a transcript from Farmingdale. Acceptance by other SUNY schools is typical. While no guarantee can be offered for all American colleges and universities, we have found that such credits earned with a grade of C or better are accepted by a broad range of public and private institutions.

A database compiled by researchers at the University of Connecticut allows you to search college credit transfer information for over 900 colleges and universities, learn about their credit transfer/equivalency policies, and see a 1-5 star ranking of credit transfer likelihood at each institution:

The UConn database is a starting point for your credit transfer research. Consult individual college and university websites for the most up-to-date and specific information on course credit transfer and equivalency policies.

  • Not Attending Farmingdale State College? Request your transcripts to be sent to the college of your choice. They are not automatically sent once you complete the program.

Withdrawal from UHS Program

Registration for University in the High School courses is handled in accordance with SUNY policies. Once you submit the registration form and proper payment, you are enrolled in the course, and are responsible for the registration fee.

If, for any reason, you want or need to drop the University in the High School course (whether or not you continue to participate in the high school course) you must tell us in writing. The following financial liability schedule will apply:

Courses that are dropped during the first week of classes will not appear on a student's transcript.

  • During the first week of classes students will receive a 100% refund for courses that are dropped and for schedules that are cancelled.
  • During the second week of classes students will be entitled to a 70% refund.
  • During the third week they are entitled to a 50% refund and during the fourth week they are entitled to receive a 30% refund.
  • After the fourth week of classes students are fully liable for all program fees.

The withdrawal process begins on the second week of classes. Starting the second week of classes students who initiate a withdrawal, course or semester withdrawal will receive a "W" for that course on their transcript. The financial liability will be determined by the refund schedule in effect at the time the withdrawal is processed.

Also in accordance with University policies, outstanding financial liability to the University results in a hold being placed on student records. This means that future registrations are not permitted and transcript requests will not be honored until the liability has been satisfied.
