Admission to The College at Brockport is very competitive. Students who meet our first-time or transfer criteria are offered regular admission to the College. We encourage these students to submit their tuition and housing deposits (if applicable) in order to secure their spot.
Students who are admitted to our Transition Program have demonstrated extensive academic achievements but fall just shy of meeting our regular admittions requirements. Students admitted to the Transition Program complete the same coursework, have the same housing options and the same grade requirements for continued enrollment as all other freshmen. Additional academic and personal support services will be available for them to ensure their success at Brockport.
Our Exceptional Talent Program is a special type of admit program for students who show potential for success at Brockport but do not meet traditional admissions requirements. These students demonstrate a talent in a specific area (such as athletics or dance) and must be recommended for the program by a College faculty or staff member (such as a coach or academic department chair). Students offered admission through this program must adhere to specific conditions as outlined by a Letter of Commitment, which they will receive with their acceptance letter.
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) has traditionally assisted economically and educationally disadvantaged students to achieve their educational goals. To qualify for the program, students must meet specific academic and financial criteria. There is limited space in the program, so it is integral that students continually check the status of their application and get us the required materials in a timely fashion.
Admission to The College at Brockport is very competitive, and we are not able to offer admission to all students. If a Brockport education remains an educational goal, however, we do have some recommendations.
For first-time students who have been denied, we recommend that the student completes a minimum of 24 transferrable credits with a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA and then apply to Brockport as a transfer student.
For transfer students who have been denied, we recommend additional academic course work in order to show improvement.
Students are eligible to appeal their decision by submitting a letter of request to the Director of Admissions. Students should explain why their application should be reviewed again and submit any additional materials (such as an updated transcript) for re-consideration.
