Undergraduate Admissions

Freshman Application Process

  1. Complete either the SUNY Application or the Common Application (both are available in high school counseling offices and online). You must complete ONLY ONE. If you fill out the SUNY Application, be sure to complete the SUNY Supplemental Application (Part II).

2. Submit official high school transcript or SUNY Online Academic Record (SOAR)

3. Submit standardized test scores. We accept the SAT and/or ACT. These scores may be submitted on the official high school transcript or directly from the testing agency.

4. Submit at least one letter of recommendation from a teacher and/or counselor. If you complete the Common Application, you will be prompted to submit one during that process.

5. Check the status of your application regularly to ensure that your application is complete. It is common for us to ask for mid-year grades or other additional information to help us make a decision on your application.


Brockport operates on a rolling admissions basis, which means that we make decisions on applications as they become complete. Once an application is received by our office, it will be reviewed to determine if it is complete. If the application is complete, it will be reviewed and a decision letter will be mailed to the applicant. If it is incomplete, students will be able to check the status of their application online to see what information is missing.


Honors College Application

The College at Brockport's Honors College is designed for our most talented, motivated, and intellectually curious students. Honors students enjoy the challenges and rewards of working closely with distinguished faculty in small, interactive courses and on scholarly research projects.

Honors students also receive a number of perks, including:

  • Tuition for New York State residents, or an estimated $10,470 scholarship for out-of-state students
  • On-campus parking pass
  • An Apple iPad tablet as part of the College's eTextbook and collaborative learning initiatives
  • Dedicated Honors College academic advisor
  • Priority registration, housing and advance move-in date

To be considered for Honors College, you must file a separate application (in addition to your application to the College) by March 15. (The Honors College Scholarship cannot be combined with any Extraordinary Academic Scholarships)

Students Offered Admission

For admitted students, tuition and housing deposit information is included with the acceptance packet. Please pay close attention to the deposit deadline as these are required to secure your spot in the freshman class. You can find out more about freshmen registration, housing options, meal plans, orientation, and more by visiting our Admitted Students page.

Incoming freshmen must submit their final high school transcripts, official AP and IB scores, and transcripts from any colleges they may have earned credit from. Freshmen should do so as soon as they are available in order to complete the admissions application and assist in the freshman registration process. Failure to do so will result in the Financial Aid Office being unable to disburse your financial aid.


Students Not Offered Admission

Not all applicants are offered admission as a freshman. Admission to The College at Brockport is competitive and less than 50% of applicants are offered admission each year.

For students who are not offered admission and still wish to enroll at Brockport, we encourage them to complete one year (minimum 24 transferable college credits) at a two-year or community college and then apply as a transfer student for the following year. Students who have not been offered admission as a freshman applicant for the fall semester will only be considered as a transfer applicant for the following fall semester and beyond.
