Early Admissions

The College has established an Early Admission Program in accordance with State Education Department guidelines in order to provide academically capable high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to take college-level courses. These guidelines require an average of 80% or higher in a Regents course of study and a recommendation from the high school guidance counselor or principal. The Early Admission Application form is available for download or can be obtained from a high school guidance counselor or from the Admissions Office at SUNY Adirondack. Early Admission students are ineligible for both federal and state aid.

Applicants entering their senior year may be considered for full-time study. Students must submit an Early Admission Application/Registration Form as well as an official high school transcript and a one page essay detailing why they want to attend SUNY Adirondack. Candidates for full-time study will also need to complete the SUNY Adirondack application for admission.  All decisions are at the discretion of the Director of Admissions.

High school juniors/home schooled juniors will be considered under the same standards on a part-time basis only, and with the written request and recommendation of the high school principal/designated school official.

An Early Admission Form must be completed each semester. All applicants must attach an official copy of the high school transcript to the application.
