Admissions FAQ


When do I apply for transfer admission? Is there an application deadline?

The application deadline for the fall semester is July 15. The application deadline for the spring semester is December 1. However, we encourage students to submit their application early to allow for timely processing of financial aid, as well as scholarship consideration.

Where do I send my application?

What does it cost to apply?

There is a $50 application fee for the SUNY Application (Option A) or The Common Application (Option B).

Can the application fee be waived?

The fee for the SUNY Application (Option A) is waived for:

  • Students applying directly from a two-year New York State public college (SUNY/CUNY) who will have earned an associate degree by the time of their planned entrance at SUNY Poly.
  • Applicants to the Educational Opportunity Program. Applicants found to be ineligible for the EOP Program will be billed for the application fee.

The fee for the The Common Application (Option B) can not be waived.

How do I know if I'm a transfer student?

If you have earned college credit following high school graduation, you are eligible to apply for transfer admission at SUNY Poly.

What credentials must be submitted to properly file a transfer application?

Applicants must submit a completed SUNY application (online or paper application), the $50 processing fee (if applicable), official transcript verifying high school graduation, and official transcripts from all previously attended colleges. Transfer students with 24 credit hours or less must also submit an official high school transcript and standardized test scores. Official transcripts should be sent to:

What are the transfer requirements?

Students presenting a G.P.A. below a 2.7 and above a 2.0 will be considered on an individual basis. Highest consideration is given to associate degree holders (A.A., A.S.) in regards to minimum G.P.A. required. Acceptable credentials vary by academic program.

When will I know if I'm accepted for admission?

For a fall start, notification of admission begins on December 1 and continues on a rolling basis. For a spring start, notification of admission begins on October 1 and continues on a rolling basis.

Can I apply for EOP admissions?

SUNY Poly offers the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) to a limited number of incoming transfer students. Applicants must meet academic, as well as financial criteria, and must have been enrolled in EOP at their previous college.

Is there a tuition deposit?

Yes, there is a $50 tuition deposit required of all full-time students, which must be submitted with the "Enrollment Confirmation" card. Part-time students must submit the "Enrollment Confirmation" card, but are not required to submit a monetary deposit. Deposits must be submitted within 30 days of receiving your notice of acceptance.
