Transfer Application Process

Step 1


Complete either the SUNY Application or the Common Application. You must complete ONLY ONE.

  • The fall application deadline is July 1st
  • The spring application deadline is December 1st

Step 2












Submit official, sealed transcripts from every college/university attended. This is necessary regardless of the number of credits earned, even if the information appears on another institution's transcript. Failure to report all previously attended colleges on the application will cause a delay in the application process. Please send official transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Less than 24 transferable college credits

  • Students with less than 24 transferable college credits are also required to submit official high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores for consideration.

More than 54 transferable college credits

  • If you will be transferring to The College at Brockport with more than 54 transferable college credits, you will be required to indicate an academic major on your application. Teacher certification is available at Brockport, and must be completed in addition to a declared major. Please visit the Department of Education and Human Development's website for a complete list of appropriate academic majors for education certification.

Step 3

Check the status of your application regularly to ensure that your application is complete. If you have questions about materials that we are requesting, please refer to our Status Code Descriptions or contact us for clarification.


Previous Applicants

Students who were previously admitted or had no decision on their application are allowed to update their application for up to one academic year after applying using the Request to Update Application online form. For example, if you have been accepted for the fall semester, you may update your application to the following spring or fall semester. After that semester, you will need to re-apply.

Please note that:

  1. A prior acceptance does not guarantee acceptance for a future semester, and
  2. We may require updated transcripts and/or additional information. If this is the case, we will send you a letter or email requesting the needed credentials.


Admissions Decisions

Acceptance letters are sent on a rolling basis, about two weeks after your file is complete. The College at Brockport makes admissions decisions until the class has become full. Transfer applicants should be aware that some academic programs have a separate application and deadline. Please visit the undergraduate program of study's website for more information. The earlier you apply, the better.

If you are offered admission to The College at Brockport, new transfer students must submit their final high school transcripts or another form of proof of high school graduation, final college transcript (with proof of graduation if applicable), as well as any official AP, IB, CLEP or military scores/transcripts. Students should do so as soon as possible in order to complete the admissions application and assist in the registration process. Failure to do so will prevent the student from receiving vital college services.
