Quick Guide to Transferring

If you are planning to transfer from SUNY Adirondack, it is generally advisable to complete associate degree requirements first, although transfer of coursework is still possible without degree completion.  

 

Some suggestions for making a smooth transfer include:

  • Investigate possible transfer colleges before admission to SUNY Adirondack or as early as possible in your SUNY Adirondack career.  Have two or three specific transfer colleges in mind, and study the catalogs for each, carefully.
  • Visit the SUNY Adirondack Counseling Center which has a large selection of college catalogs, view books and applications.  In addition, the computerized "Discover" program is available for college research and career information.  
  • Plan your courses at SUNY Adirondack so that they coincide with courses normally required of freshmen and sophomores at your desired four-year college. Laying the foundation for your bachelor's degree while you are a student at SUNY Adirondack will save you time and money.
  • Investigate costs at the four-year college and design a financial plan.  Check with the Financial Aid Office and the four-year college's Financial Aid Office to find out what you may be eligible for and what your actual cost will be.
  • Talk with four-year college admissions counselors who visit the SUNY Adirondack campus.  Each year, representatives from colleges all over the northeast come to the campus for a fall Transfer Day and fall and spring College Nights to talk with students about transferring.
  • Plan a visit to the colleges you are considering. It is helpful in your decision-making to visit four-year college campuses and to speak with admissions personnel. In addition, some colleges require or recommend an admissions interview.
  • Adirondack Community College has established formal transfer agreements with numerous public and private colleges and universities in New York State and throughout the northeast.  Please visit the transfer agreement web page for more detailed information.
